A Message from Father John Gabriel

Letter from Fr. John Gabriel 3/26/2020:

Dear Parish Family,

I and all of your priests here in St. Paul Rectory send along our greetings and prayerful regards during this unique period of time in our history. It is a time filled with challenges, and one also filled with graces if we know where to seek them. It is my prayer that each of us will use this time to draw spiritual profit from the time we have been given, a profit that comes to us from a deep awareness of Christ among us even now. I have never before seen so many opportunities for growth in spirituality and understanding of our Catholic faith presented in creative ways through technology. But the “old fashioned” ways (that are not so old fashioned after all) are still powerful: get out your Bibles and read, pray the rosary, get a good spiritual book. Allow God to guide you and be open to His initiative in your life.

Dear Parish Family:

Although this is a difficult time for all of us, I really want to thank the priests, parish staff, and our parish family for the ways we have been responding and supporting and praying for one another. We will continue to do our best to live stream celebrations of holy Mass and other spiritual events that can keep us united and keep us growing in our relationships with Christ during this Lenten season. We will keep you posted on important information as we become aware.

Announcement

Pope Francis invites all to pray the Rosary
Thursday, March 19th
Solemnity of St. Joseph
4:00 pm EST

The Holy Father has requested that the entire Catholic world join him in praying the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary today, the Solemnity of St. Joseph, March 19th, for the intentions of all affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please join Fr. Patrick at 4 pm in praying the rosary in conjunction with Pope Francis Request (see below)

Fr. Patrick will also offer a reflection on St. Joseph following the rosary as this is the Solemnity of Saint Joseph.


Today we celebrate the Solemnity of Saint Joseph. In life, work, family, joy and sorrow he always sought and loved the Lord, meriting the praise of Scripture as a just and wise man. Always invoke him with confidence, especially in difficult times, and entrust your lives to this great Saint.

I join in the appeal of the Italian bishops who in this health emergency have promoted a moment of prayer for the whole country. Every family, every faithful, every religious community: all united spiritually today at 4 p.m. in the recitation of the Rosary, with the Mysteries of Light.

We are led to the luminous and transfigured face of Jesus Christ and His Heart by Mary, Mother of God, health of the sick, to whom we turn with the prayer of the Rosary, under the loving gaze of Saint Joseph, Guardian of the Holy Family and of our families. And we ask him to take special care of our family, our families, especially the sick and the people who are taking care of them: doctors, nurses, and volunteers, who risk their lives in this service.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM FR. JOHN GABRIEL

Recently, we have received notification of email and text scams that will use the name of a pastor to solicit funds in the form of gift cards or cash donations. The email usually includes no recipients’ name, and asks for financial help for a worthy cause. The pastor’s name concludes the requests.

Law enforcement agencies urge parishioners to question any email or text that doesn’t come from a person in their contacts. If a pastor’s name is used, parishioners should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of the appeal.

Please note: No priest or staff member will ever solicit funds in this manner.

welcome to the On Line portion of the Parish Community of St. Paul in Ramsey, NJ. It is our hope that the information you gather from these pages will enable you to know better who we are as a parish community and how we work to proclaim the Lord Jesus in our midst.
