We welcome our new Friars!   

 
Fr Larry Hayes, OFM
 
Fr Emerson Rodriguez, OFM

 
John Aherne, OFM

This summer John Aherne, OFM, will be joining our St Mary’s family! His ordination will be held at 11AM on June 23 at St. Francis of Assisi Church on West 31st Street, NYC. St Francis is the headquarters for Holy Name Province to which we friars belong and where all our major celebrations take place. It is a beautiful church.

We would love to have a welcoming delegation from St Mary’s at the ordination and we are arranging for one coach bus to transport anyone who wishes to attend. The bus holds 49 people and will leave at 8:30AM on Saturday, June 23 and return to St Mary’s around 3:30PM. The cost is $25 per person and it will be filled on a “first-come, first-served” basis. So, if you want to go and not have to worry about traffic and parking,
sign up HERE or the Parish Office.


John is the second of four children, and was raised in Maspeth, Queens by Daniel and Bridget Aherne, both natives of Ireland. After graduating from New York University with degrees in English Literature and Anthropology, John worked as a book editor in New York City and ran an Irish Dancing School before joining the Friars in 2010. He enjoys reading, running, crossword puzzles, and spending time with his nieces and nephews. 



Please give them a warm St Mary's welcome!


 

“Rebuild My House”

               A Building Repair Campaign                

      Addressing what needs to be done to rebuild God’s "physical house” here at St. Mary’s.

We need your help to raise $700,000 to repair our buildings so we may continue to fulfill our Christian and Franciscan Mission at St Mary’s for many years to come.

 

Please go to "Rebuild My House" page for more information

As you are probably aware, church attendance during
the summer months tends to drop off as vacations and
weekend sporting events often conflict. On the other hand,
the services we provide within the parish and for the larger
community continue year round, as do their associated
expenses. Thus, your consistent financial support of our
parish is vital to achieving our stewardship mission.
The easiest way to be sure that your gift of treasure reaches
us, even when you can’t be here, is through enrollment in our
electronic offertory program: Faith Direct. If you have not
yet enrolled, please consider doing so this month.


Enroll today!   www.faithdirect.net and use our parish code NJ23.  

Thank you in advance for your support and for using Faith Direct!
