The Sixth Sunday of Easter



This Sunday, May 5th, We Welcome   Father Patrick Malloy 

Father Malloy, Associate Dean and Professor of Liturgics at The General Theological Seminary, our Theologian-in-Residence; a gifted teacher, wise priest, and dear friend of Mother Susan, will be preaching and presiding.


Electing Convention on Saturday! 

Please pray for our Diocese, as we gather to elect the 12th Bishop of The Diocese of NJ.  We are grateful for our delegates, Bob Courtemanche, Sue Catlett, and Alessandro DeGregori for representing our parish with our Rector.  For more information and for live updates on Saturday visit


Can You Speak or Read Another Language?


As we prepare for the Feast of Pentecost on Sunday, May 19th, we recall the gift of the Holy Spirit.  The first disciples experienced this by understanding languages they had never before learned.  If you are able to read or speak a language other than English, please contact Mother Susan in order to participate in the proclamation of the lessons on Pentecost, when we will experience the gift of multiple languages proclaiming the Word of the Lord.  Fluency is not needed.  One merely needs to be able to read aloud in a different language. 


Ladies' Luncheon on Thursday, May 16th


All are welcome to join us on Thursday, May 16th at noon for the Ladies Luncheon at the home of Gerri-Jo Cranmer, 320 Hardscrabble Road, Bernardsville.  Please bring a sandwich; beverages and dessert will be provided.  Please RSVP to Gerri-Jo at 908-766-0199.  We hope to see you there.
