Holy Week in Time of Covid 19

The following has been prepared by the Office of Divine Worship of the Archdiocese of Newark for Holy Week in accordance with the Decree issued by the Congregation for Divine Worship, “In time of Covid-19” protocol number 153/20.

Church Year
The Church Year with its sacred liturgies is the basis of our spirituality as Catholic Christians, with the Eucharist as the “source and summit” of the Christian life. Sadly, the current crisis which has suspended liturgical services, will now be disrupting Holy Week. It should be noted that the following temporary measures are for 2020 ONLY. The adaptations provided by the Holy See, by way of exception for this difficult period, are not meant to establish a future precedent.

Lent and the Time Leading Up to Holy Week

Church Visitation
With the closing of all churches, church buildings should be locked. No public celebrations of the liturgy, devotions or exposition of the Blessed Sacrament may be held.

AT THE DIRECTION OF THE ARCHDIOCESE: ALL CHURCHES ARE TO REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, EFFECTIVE 3/26/20.

Dear Friends

Dear Friends,
It’s Saturday, March 21st.  It was only two weeks ago yesterday that I returned from the hills (mountains, if you like) of Vermont.  And it’s a totally different world, to which we all have to adjust.  That adjustment, it seems, is about to get even more radical in the coming week, perhaps as early as today.  First and foremost, in all of this, I pray for those who have been stricken by the coronavirus, those who have died from it and their families and friends.  I pray for the healthcare workers, ,those who put their lives out in front, knowing that their own health is at risk, even with whatever protection is or might be available.  I pray for all of us, not just for our safety but for the “wholeness” of our hearts, to keep strong, confident, trusting in the Lord’s love for us, as He holds us gently in the palm of His hands.

The MOMs group is a dynamic and diverse group of new and experienced mothers who share a commitment to making Christ the center of their family’s lives. They do this by supporting, praying, sharing and learning from each other. MOMs generally meet on the first Wednesday morning of each month. If you would like to see what MOMs is all about, please be our guest. You do not need to be a member to attend these meetings. So many moms over the years have gotten more involved in the life of the parish by first coming to MOMs. The monthly meetings usually feature a guest speaker with a lively question, comments and discussion period following the presentation. Meetings also always begin in prayer for our needs and those of our family and friends and the wider community. Childcare is available.

 

Other opportunities include:

  • Journal Group: An eight session journey of following a booklet just for mothers where we can take a step back and think about our role as moms. Gathering at the weekly meeting offers us the time to share with other MOMs in an intimate setting Those that sign up for journal make both instant and long lasting friendships. Each setting lasts between 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
  • Nurturing Place (Jersey City, NJ): MOMs supports and coordinates donations for this very important child development center and transitional housing program for mothers in need. Fundraisers are also held throughout the year. Advent dinner/Ash Wednesday Meatless dinner: MOMs members coordinate these meals held in the parish center to share with other parishioners and their families during the seasons of Advent and Lent. These are great community building events for the whole family.
  • Social groups: These groups include tennis, book club, reservation club, and playgroups. Spiritual activities: MOMs coordinate circle of care (support for members including meals or childcare), rosary group, prayer chains, MOMs mass, and a women’s retreat night.
