What you can do:
Make an Act of Spiritual Communion - Visit mass-online.org

Maintain Social Distancing 
Follow along with updates from the CDC and WHO 
Avoid  Panic and  pray a lot. We are a people of trust . May God in His Mercy keep you  safe.

ARCHDIOCESE OF NEWARK LAUNCHES UNPRECEDENTED FUNDRAISING EFFORT IN SUPPORT OF COMMUNITY PARISHES
During Pandemic, Cardinal Tobin Encourages Parishioners to Aid Local Churches and Ministries

Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin, C.Ss.R, Archbishop of Newark, has announced an unprecedented fundraising initiative specifically aimed at supporting continued outreach and archdiocesan parish communities during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The effort, coordinated with GoFundMe, a global online fundraising platform, will enable parishioners to provide direct support to local churches throughout this challenging time. A dedicated website, at www.rcan.org/parishsupport, has been established for this program.

“The first place people often go in time of need is the local parish,” said Cardinal Tobin. “Under the current conditions brought on by the coronavirus epidemic, parishes are limited in the services they can offer to the faithful and those in need. Please consider a tax-deductible contribution to our special Parishes in Need fund, which will be used to support those communities struggling to pay their employees, conduct outreach, and cover church utility bills through this crisis.”

Catholic parishes rely on weekly contributions from parishioners, known as the offertory collection, to support the work of each community, including staff wages and daily operations. In addition to Masses, many parishes provide services beyond their membership, such as counseling, meeting spaces, and charitable drives for families in need. While some churchgoers send contributions by mail, many prefer to place donations in collection baskets each Sunday during worship services.

All public celebrations of Mass throughout the Archdiocese of Newark are temporarily suspended during the crisis, and the Archdiocese and many community parishes have transitioned to live-streaming services online.

Cardinal Tobin emphasized that all donors can designate their contributions specifically to benefit of their own parish, and that all monies raised will be sent directly to those churches for which they are earmarked. The Archdiocese will temporarily waive its assessment (an administrative fee charged to parishes to support archdiocesan operations and ministries), and GoFundMe will charge only a small fee per donation to cover payment processing, as is typical for online fundraising platforms.

The Archdiocesan-wide parish support initiative, specially focused on supporting local parishes, is the first of its kind. Cardinal Tobin hopes that other dioceses and ministries will follow suit.

“The faithful may also contribute through their usual channels, such as mailed envelopes, other online giving, and, especially, our Annual Appeal which is now in progress,” the Cardinal said, adding that many within the Archdiocese have already reached out with generous offers of support and questions about how to give. “Together we will navigate these uncharted waters, provide assistance to those in need, and secure the road ahead for the Catholic Church of the Archdiocese of Newark. We are grateful for the generosity of our faithful, and we will work together in prayer to move past this and prevent the suffering of the most vulnerable among us.”

Drodzy Parafianie!
Przeżywamy trudny czas dla naszej społeczności, Kościoła i każdego z nas. Czas kryzysu, trudności, które nas spotykają i obaw o przyszłość, to także czas szukania pomocy i wsparcia u Boga, który jest źródłem pociechy i nadziei. Skutki epidemii dotknęły również i naszego uczestnictwa w życiu sakramentalnym. Choć trudne do przyjęcia, to jednak jest to podyktowane ograniczeniem rozprzestrzeniania się koronawirusa. To czas próby naszej wiary, ale i szansa na jej umocnienie

– Zachęcamy do codziennej modlitwy różańcowej w intencji przezwyciężenia epidemii

Pamiętamy o Was w codziennej Eucharystii ( odprawiamy w naszej kaplicy ) i prosimy Boga o siły i jego błogosławieństwo na ten trudny czas.

Carissimi Parrocchiani,

Come sapete in questo periodo della pandemia di Covid-19, Sua Emm.  il Cardinale Joseph Tobin CSsR, arcivescovo metropolita di Newark ha sospeso tutte le celebrazioni liturgiche e ogni altra funzione religiosa, ivi compresi i funerali in forma pubblica.
La chiesa della Madonna del Monte Carmelo rimane comunque aperta alla preghiera personale, con la richiesta di rispettare la distanza di sicurezza tra i singoli fedeli.
Anche le celebrazioni delle esequie, Matrimoni e Battesimi sono in forma privata.
In questo tempo difficile della prova per tutti noi, siamo uniti con tutta l’Italia e specialmente le vostre Famiglie. Ogni giorno preghiamo e chiediamo il Signore Misericordioso di fermare questo coronavirus e di guarire tutti malati! Chiediamo anche la grazia della nostra conversione personale e di tutto il mondo. Ogni giorno celebriamo le Sante Messe in forma privata secondo le intenzioni parrocchiali e preghiamo per voi. Carissimi!
Vi salutiamo di cuore!
