Healing After Abortion: Do you know someone who is carrying the grief of a past abortion? There is always hope. The pain and sorrow of abortion does not need to endure for a lifetime. A "Day of Prayer and Healing" offers the opportunity to experience the love and mercy of God to respond to His invitation to begin the journey of healing the wound of abortion. For upcoming dates, locations, and confidential registration, or just to talk to a Sister, please call the Sisters of Life at (866) 575-0075 (toll free) or reach us by email at hopeandhealing@sistersoflife.org 

FIRST FRIDAY HOLY HOUR: As a parish, we will be having First Friday Holy Hours each month.  The months of May - October the Holy Hours will be at All Saints Church and the months of November - April the Holy Hours will be at St. Paul Church.  Holy Hours begin at 7:00 PM. Please come and join us in prayer.

**During Lent, there will be weekly Adoration, Benediction (3-6:45 p.m.) and Stations (7 p.m.) during which confession will be available (5-6 p.m.) at alternating sites. Please check the homepage regularly for site information.  


Faith in Our Future is a process through which the Diocese of Trenton, its parishes and ministries, will plan to meet challenges and respond to new opportunities for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ for years to come.

Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., has identified five goals for Faith in Our Future:

> Strengthen and enliven the parishes of the Diocese as well as diocesan sponsored organizations and ministries.

> Explore new models of leadership in parishes and ministries in institutional settings (schools, colleges, hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, etc.) in order to address the challenges presented by the anticipated retirement of a large number of clergy and religious over the next 10 years.

> Improve our stewardship of personnel, finances, and facilities and other parish and diocesan resources.

Establish collaborative relationships among the parishes and ministries of the  Diocese that will build upon the Gospel to re-evangelize the local Church, especially those who live on the fringes of the Church, as well as those who do not yet know Christ.

> Provide for pastoral ministry to Hispanic Catholics, the fastest growing segment of our Diocesan population, within our parishes and organizations.

MEMORIAL DONATIONS

The Parish of St. Katharine Drexel offers parishioners the availability to make donations to the parish in memory of your loved ones all year long. Donations begin at $10. A donation card can be given to the family of the deceased at the viewing at the funeral home prior to the Prayer Service or before a funeral Mass at Church. Donation cards can also be mailed to the family of the deceased. Donations from our Memorial Fund are used to help with repairs or improvements to both our Churches, as well as purchases of such things as: new altar linens, vestments for the priests or deacons, new albs for the altar servers, baby bibs for baptisms, candles for the altars, or refinishing of our religious appointments. Donations can be made at the Parish Office or they can be requested by mail. Memorial donations are a beautiful way to have the good works of your loved ones continued with the Church.


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The St. Vincent de Paul Society is in need of women volunteers to assist in the ministry’s home visits. Our requests for assistance has increased over the past two years. A home visit takes about 45 minutes, and you are accompanied by another volunteer member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Your services would only be needed once a month or bi-monthly. Please call (609) 386-3650 and leave your name and phone number. Someone from the Society will return your call. Thank you for considering this very worthwhile parish ministry.
