LENTEN REGULATIONS 2019


March 19th
Novena Prayer to Saint Joseph
O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great,
so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God,
I place in you all my interests and desires.
O Saint Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession
and obtain for me from your Divine Son
all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord;
so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power
I may offer my Thanksgiving and Homage
to the most Loving of Fathers.  
O Saint Joseph, I never weary
contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms.
I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart.
Press Him in my name and
kiss Hiss fine Head for me
and ask Him to return the Kiss
when I draw my dying breath.
Saint Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us.  Amen.

the living God than a meditative common prayer with,
singing, when one is alone again at the high point, 
in the silence of one’s heart.”

“Life is a journey that should
    not be walked alone…
Are you interested in exploring Catholicism for  
yourself  or do you know someone who might
  be interested in finding out more about our faith?
 Are you baptized in another Christian church
or thinking about joining the Catholic Church?
 Are you Catholic but never received
Confirmation or First Communion?  
     If so, then RCIA may be for you!
 What is the RCIA?
How does someone become Catholic?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
is the process by which people
can question, search, and inquire
into the Catholic faith.
It is a journey that leads many to seek
full membership in our Catholic Church

Our RCIA program addresses the conversion needs for:

  • Adults who have never been baptized;
  • Adults who have been baptized in another Christian tradition;
  • Adults who were baptized Catholic but have had no instruction in the faith or have not received the Sacraments of First Eucharist and/or Confirmation.
RCIA is about growth in faith and growth
in a relationship with God.  
Saint Ann Catholic Church
invites you to get answers to
ALL your questions about the Catholic faith… 
You do not have to journey alone!! 
SESSIONS continue throughout the year!

Father, 
You invite each one of us by name

We ask that You bless Your Church
in the Archdiocese of Newark
by raising up dedicated and generous leaders 
from our families and friends
who will faithfully serve Your people
as Priests, Religious Brothers and Sisters, 
and as holy Married and Single people.
Inspire us to grow in our
relationship with You and open
our hearts to accept Your invitation.
We ask this in the name
of Jesus our Lord.  Amen
“Becoming a priest or a man or woman religious 
is not primarily our own decision…. 
Rather it is the response to a call and
to a call of love.”
