Dear Friends of the Archdiocese,
I want to take a moment to thank all of our priests, staffs and parishioners serving on the frontlines of this pandemic, particularly our first responders, law enforcement officers, nurses, doctors, teachers, volunteers, chaplains, and so many more – who witness courageously to Christ’s command – “love one another as I have loved you.” In one way or another, perhaps, more aptly, in many ways and another, they have striven to continue the mission of Christ and his Church and truly lived the Christian call to faith, hope and charity.
As an Archdiocese, we strive to care for and serve all the People of God and, in a special way, the needs of the poor and vulnerable, boldly proclaiming the Gospel, and forming the next generation of Catholics through our programs and ministries. Although a little more hidden, distanced, and in new ways these last few weeks – we continue to shine Christ’s light and ensure that all who come to us still have their physical and spiritual needs met. All our people have worked hard together, using former and new ways to bring the sacraments to the faithful, food to the hungry, assistance to those in need. Using their time, talent and treasure to continue the mission of Jesus Christ, I’ve heard countless stories of disciples offering “five loaves and two fish” so that the Lord might “feed” thousands.
I express my profound and heartfelt thank you if you have already made a gift to the 2020 Annual Appeal. Your generosity allows the Church of Newark to continue “feeding” all God’s children. Your gift will have a direct impact on the lives of all those we serve. If you have not yet made a gift, may I ask you to please take a moment to pray about it, and kindly consider how you can support the mission of our local Church. Now more than ever, your help is needed to sustain our parishes and ministries.
With gratitude and imploring God’s abundant blessings on you, I remain
Rev. Msgr. Thomas P. Nydegger
Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Happy and joyful Easter to you all! I know with what is going on in the world right now you are probably thinking how can I say Happy and Joyful Easter? Well, it is because that is exactly what I am feeling this Easter. Matter of fact I think I am feeling it more this year then I have for many years! Don’t get me wrong of course I would rather the church be filled with people rather than celebrating mass for a camera, I would rather the church be filled with flowers for the Easter celebration and in the evening I would rather go to a restaurant with my family for a nice Easter dinner as we had planned. However, I come to realize that for years I have taken Easter for granted, I have forgotten to really think about what Easter is all about. This year will all the “normal” things I would do on Easter not happening it left me time to think about what Easter is really all about. It is about Christ rising from the dead and thus opening the gates of Heaven for all of us, it is about Christ leading us to our own resurrection and life eternal! A life that will last forever, a life that is filled with that does not have pain, suffering, sickness or VIRUSES! A life filled with joy, peace, happiness and love which has not limits and never will end!
HAPPY AND BLESSED EASTER EVERYONE!
