  • Nursing Home Gift-Giving

    The Christmas season is fast approaching, and once again through the generosity of the parishioners at St. Joseph’s Church, the Christian Service Committee will be able to provide gifts to the residents of the Lincoln Park Nursing Home. Most of these residents would otherwise not receive any gifts at Christmas.

    Our list of gift suggestions are:
    Men: socks, slippers and Tee-shirts
    Women: socks and slippers

    Miscellaneous: toiletries, i.e., deodorant, dental items, moisturizer, hand cream, etc.

    Gifts should be returned wrapped and labeled (man or
    woman and what’s inside) and placed on the windowsills
    in church. All gifts should be returned by Sunday, December 12th. Any questions, call Meg Williams at

  • Christmas Giving Tree

    Our “Giving “Tree” Christmas project will begin this weekend, November 20th & 21st. We will provide gift cards for adults and adolescents, and focus on gifts for younger children.

    Ornaments will be available on display boards in the rear of the church. There will be display boards and sign-out books on both sides of the church to enable us to maintain social distancing. Please sign your name and phone number in the book next to the corresponding gift number on the ornament you choose.

    We ask for all gifts to be returned with the ornament attached to the gift the weekend of December 11th & 12th. It is helpful to return gift cards in a small gift bag, if possible.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mary Bono (973.696.9713) or Lois Moeller
    (201.572.1646). Cash donations are also welcome.

    Thank you and God bless you for your continued generosity.

  • Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

    R.C.I.A., the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process for anyone wishing to know more about the Roman Catholic Faith and the reception of the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation).  By our baptism, each of us is called to share the good news.  Each of us may know someone who, if asked, would consider becoming a Catholic. The invitation needs to be extended.

    As a member of the faith family, have you extended the invitation? If you want to become a Catholic or know someone who may be interested in becoming a Catholic, please come to the Parish Center room 6 for classes on Sundays at 11 AM or call the office at
