Registration information for the 2021-2022 models of faith formation at STM are now available. We look forward to bringing our students and families to know, love, and serve Jesus, become engaged members of His Church, draw closer together as Christian families, and grow in faith in this new year! May God bless you all.
GoFundMe has advised the Archdiocese of Newark that they will no longer host the platform which has hosted the STM GoFundMe Parish Support Initiative through the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The last day for GoFundMe donations will be September 30, 2021. Parishioners with recurring donations will also cease on September 30, 2021.
We appreciate your generosity to our parish through this program. All of the donations made via GoFundMe to support our collections for Sunday Offerings, Carnival Fundraiser Substitutes, Holy Week & Easter, Christmas, and our 2020 Assistance Appeal went directly to STM to support our parish ministry, mission, operations, and expenses through the challenging times we continue to face due to the pandemic.
If you wish to continue extra contributions, the “STM COVID Assistance Appeal” remains open to accept restricted gifts to STM. Please make a notation on the envelope/check that the gift is restricted for the Assistance Appeal.
Your regular Sunday/Special Collection tithes may continue to be made by offering envelopes, collection baskets, and myEoffering.
Please know of our gratitude for you and your dedication to STM. May God bless you and your family!

🤔 Are you missing your Missalette/Hymnal?
👉🏼 If you are, we’re sorry! Due to COVID, we were not able to have these “common-touch” items as per the Archdiocesean Directives. Therefore, we were unable to order Missalette/Hymnals for the 2021 liturgical year.
👉🏼 The Breaking Bread Missalette/Hymnal is produced for the liturgical year which begins in Advent. We plan on ordering them for the 2022 Liturgical Year as long as we are permitted with the COVID situation.
📲 If you are looking to follow along with the Mass Readings, you can do so on your Smartphone at this website: https://bible.usccb.org. Simply select on the date and liturgical celebration.
🔕 Please don’t forget to silence your cell phone’s volume and notification/ringer sound so we can be sure there are no distractions during Mass. Thank you very much!
👂 Here’s something to consider... God’s presence in His Word at Mass is made manifest through the “kerygma” or “proclamation” of the Word. This Greek word could also be translated as cry, announce, or preach. God’s Word is not simply letters and words on a page, but is “living and effective” (Hebrews 4:12). The Lector’s proclamation of the Sacred Scripture gives life to the Word of God in the liturgy. Consider not having the text in front of you as an opportunity to more intentionally listen to the Word which is brought to life in the liturgy as it is proclaimed aloud for all to hear.
