To connect people to GOD and to each other
...the supremacy of God in all things...
Lent in the time of COVID-19, therefore, is necessarily connected to the suffering of Jesus Christ. It forces us to reexamine the practices we committed ourselves to, asking ourselves how these practices enable us to unite ourselves to the suffering of Our Lord and thus to the suffering of our neighbor.
Attention Parishioners: Effective May 28th, the guidelines for Mass attendance have changed. Please see below for more information.

365 Days Prayer Candle
Celebrate the life of family or friends with a Prayer Candle.
You can also offer Prayer Candle to the living. Prayer Candles burn brightly night and day as expressions of prayer for special intentions. The living flame of each candle is a beautiful symbol of both prayer and of hope.
Special votive lights are located at the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. In the shrine are the statues of St. John Paul II, St. Theresa of Calcutta, St. Padre Pio and St. Jude. Once lit, they burn 24 hours a day for one year.
The glow of these votive lights in the darkened church is a powerful testimony to the life of prayer that is evidenced by so many at Immaculate Conception Church. The candle will be inscribed with the name of your loved one and will burn for them the entire year.
The number available is limited. We are currently accepting requests for these memorial votive candles. Please call the parish office.
The fee is $150 per candle.

This past year presented us with extraordinary difficult challenges and has made the need to ensure that ministries continue to flourish and flourish even greater.
In his critical moment, the need to help those less fortunate is greater that ever before.
Our efforts, ahrd work and stewardship will provide much needed relief to those whoa re truly suffering among us. The pandemic has provided the church of Newark with a unique opportunity to fulfill its call, in service to the Gospel.
As members of the Catholic Church of Newark, we are united by a common mission entrusted to us by Jesus Christ - to proclaim the Gospel, to pass on the faith to the next generation through the celebration of the sacra-ments, to care for the poor and vulnerable, and to form our future priests. The 2020 Annual Appeal binds us more closely to this
mission through our stewardship of God's many gifts.
Your support of this year's Annual Appeal will have a direct impact on the lives of those served through the ministries and programs of this Archdiocese.
The 2021 Annual Appeal will fund essential programs and ministries at the heart of our Catholic mission in our four counties – namely to proclaim the gospel, to pass on the faith to future generations, particularly through the celebration of the sacraments, and to care for the poor and those on the margins.
Now more than ever, especially during this health crisis, our ministries and programs need your support.
