What’s Happening?
Anointing Mass
The answer to the above question is, as always, lots. I am
taking a break from the discussion of our book and discipleship to update the happenings of the past few weeks as well
as inviting you to consider some upcoming opportunities.
Please join us next Sunday, Nov. 23rd at the 12 noon mass as
we communally celebrate the sacrament of Anointing of the
Sick, the sacrament that is received by those who are ill or
suffering, in any physical or emotional way. By the sacred
anointing and the prayer of the priest, the whole Church commends those who are sick to Christ. The sick person receives
the Holy Spirit’s gifts of strength, faith, peace, and courage,
and his or her suffering is united with the suffering of Christ for
the building up of the Church.
As usual, the fall is always packed with activities. Just in the
past few weeks, we had approximately ninety 10th graders
confirmed. The Confirmation celebrations were packed and
there was great music, celebration and prayerful participation
by all. It is always great to see our teens going forward in the
faith, inviting the Holy Spirit to guide and influence them.
Our All Souls Memorial Mass was poignant and memorable.
So many who attended were deeply touched by the overall
tone of the Mass set by Fr. Blind. Our recently deceased were
honored and we are able to recall our faith in the resurrection.
This past Sunday our new church doors were blessed at the
10:30 Mass. They have made quite a difference in adding to
the sacred tone of our church space. Several families allowed
for the work to be done, and to be completely covered, without
withdrawing any money from the parish maintenance & repair
fund. Thank you!
Next Sunday, November 23rd we will have a Mass of Anointing. In addition to the more physically disabled, we invite anyone to come forward as we do for Communion to receive this
special prayer of healing from the church. This will take place
at the Noon Mass and all are welcome.
Finally, every Tuesday during Advent I am going to lead a
group meditation and a series of reflections at 7:30pm in the
church. These 30-45 minutes sessions will begin on Tuesday,
Dec. 2nd and will help us to reflect and calm down during this
hectic time of year.
“a grateful heart”…
Please join us as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving and all
of God’s blessings, by stopping in the Narthex and writing on
our Gratitude Boards. A simple word or short phrase is enough
to share with the parish community of the wonderful blessings
we have received.
Loyola Jesuit Center in Morristown invites the women of both
St. Catharine and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel parishes to attend
the final silent retreat this year. Fr. Thomas Sciraghi, S.J. will
direct the Women’s Advent Retreat, Dec. 12-14.
For more information or to reserve your space, please call
ASAP! Erma McCarthy 201-652-1460, Mary Weinstein 201773-6239, or Carolyn Amoresano 201-704-2278.
If you are in need of a ride to church in order to receive the
sacrament, please call the rectory Monday – Friday during the
hours of 9am – 3pm up until Thursday, Nov. 20th.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults - RCIA
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process of initiation into the Catholic Church. We invite you, or someone you
know, to grow in faith and to be part of our Catholic community.
The RCIA process is underway! Join us in the Ministry Center Meeting Room this Wednesday, Nov. 19th at 7:30pm. Ms.
Cathy Buchanan will present a Night of Reflection.
The RCIA process is for:
• Adults (18 & older) who are interested
in becoming Catholic, including those
who are not baptized and those who
are baptized in another Christian faith.
• Adult Catholics who are in need of receiving
First Communion or Confirmation.
• RCIA is also for Catholics who have not
been attending church and want to renew
their faith; get reacquainted with the church.

Respect Life Ministry
The St. Catharine Respect Life Ministry would like to thank all
parishioners who participated in our annual "Prayers & Pampers"
collection. The local crisis pregnancy centers, Several
Sources, Good Counsel Homes, and Birthright have expressed their gratitude for your prayers and donations.
Prayer for Our Troops O God of mercy, we beg You now to
protect in a special way those who are fighting
for us and for the country we love. Bless them
and take care of them. Give them strength. Give
them comfort. Touch them with Your gentle hand
and let them know that You are near them. Hasten the day, dear Lord, when we may all enjoy
the blessings of peace once more. Amen.

Consider the Academy of Our Lady Advantage!
Teacher Feature: Hello, I’m Susan Piermatteo. I was born and
raised in Brooklyn, NY. My husband and I recently dropped our
son off at college and my daughter just started high school. It is
my tenth year at AoOL. I started with the Pre-K-4 Enrichment
Program (PEP), and now I currently teach both Pre-K-4 & PEP.
Another incredible month has come and gone. My little friends
have learned about autumn changes and self-portraits. We
wrapped up October with our Halloween celebration which
included trick-or-treating throughout the school and we hosted
a Halloween show of songs and poems for the listening pleasure of our proud parents and grandparents. Moving on to Pilgrims and Indians, everyone is looking forward to whipping up
some homemade butter to enjoy with our special Thanksgiving
snack. The best part of it all has to be the hugs, giggles, and
smiles; it lets me know they feel safe and happy.

Sharing the Gift of Treasure
St. Catharine AMPs
“Well done, good and faithful servant;
you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much…”
Association of Mature Parishioners
- Matthew 25:21
God expects us to nurture and develop the gifts He has given us
and then generously give back with increase. He doesn’t want
us to waste or hoard the gifts He has given us; He expects us to
grow our gifts, use them wisely and be generous with them.
Thank you for your generosity to St. Catharine!
Peace & Justice Corner
Visit the Imprisoned While most of us will not be able to undertake this corporeal work of mercy in a direct manner, here is an
opportunity for us to help these forgotten brethren. First Friends
NJ is a community network in Kearny, NJ that visits immigration
detainees and helps to reduce the despair they feel after months
and years imprisoned in our jails. Their annual “Stamp Out Despair” collection asks for donations of HANDWRITTEN NOTES OF
ENCOURAGEMENT, simply addressed “Dear friend”. Please help
by writing some notes and placing them in the narthex basket labeled “First Friends”. Thank you!
Solidarity "What is needed is a change in the lifestyles of individuals and communities, in habits of consumption and in perceptions
of what is genuinely needed. Most of all, there is a moral duty to
distinguish between good and evil in human action, so as to rediscover the bond of communion that unites the human person and
creation." Pope Francis, Vatican Message on World Day of Peace,
By our faith we believe that God's creation can provide for all. But
we cannot expect to meet all our material desires and whims. We
are called to be in solidarity with the world's poor. The unbridled
consumption of resources can only lead to scarcity and waste.
Whereas, an ethic of resource conservation and recycling will lead
to sustenance for all. Excerpted from "Recapturing the Agrarian Spirit"
by Bob Gronski, Catholic Rural Life Magazine, Summer 2014 p.18
