Prayers for our Holy Father and our Holy Catholic Church:

Continued prayers for our Holy Father and our Holy Catholic Church in light of recent issues involving Church Hierarchy and priest scandal.  State Deputy Bob Hatler, echoing the words of Supreme Chaplain Archbishop Lori, who said “we must pray for those victims and for those implicated in this scandal which has rocked our Church”.  Our State Chaplain, Bishop Paul Bootkoski, added “We can’t lose faith, and must realize, appreciate and support all the good priests and Bishops who are suffering because of their sinful brothers.”


Pray the rosary every day for peace in our country and around the world.  Please pray to our Blessed Mother daily.


Prayer Vigil Outside Abortion Facilities:

One small way of taking action is to volunteer an hour or two each week with your local “prayer warriors” who hold vigils outside of local abortion facilities.  The typical activities consist of holding signs, saying the rosary or other prayers, handing out brochures, or even talking to young women entering the facility.  Please consider joining the Life Chain in front of St. Veronica rectory on Sunday, Oct 7 at 2:30 PM for one hour of prayer and witnessing.


The NJ Physician Assisted Suicide bill A1504/S1072:

The NJ Physician Assisted Suicide Bill (A1504) is coming up for a vote in the Assembly on Oct 29, 2018.  This bill destroys respect for human life by legalizing suicide and will eventually lead to outright euthanasia.  Please call, email, or send a letter to our two assemblymen and urge them to vote against A1504:

Shoulder To Shoulder Program

To kick off this program the Trenton Diocese Federation designed and purchased 1,050 magnetic bumper stickers with the Order’s logo in juxtaposition with a generic police shield and the statement “Shoulder to Shoulder – With our Brothers in Blue”. These are available for a donation of $5.00. The funds generated by this project are to be applied to the establishment and development of an ongoing Public Service Announcement campaign promoting and supporting the law enforcement community. Councils are encouraged to utilize their portion of the proceeds to create and implement other programs that promote a positive image of law enforcement in the community.
