    Catholic charities

    This is a reminder next weekend, the Feast of Corpus Christi, our parish will participate in a Diocesan-wide food collection for the poor. This collection will help us offer assistance to those most in need in our Diocesan community of Morris, Passaic and Sussex Counties. The entire Diocese of Paterson will join together in this effort. Remember: Saint Joseph has been asked to provide canned meats or fish of any kind. Kindly bring your food donations with you at Mass next weekend. Cash donations will also be accepted.

    6:00 PM MASS Suspended


    Starting Memorial Weekend, May 29th through Labor Day, September 4th, there will be NO 6:00pm Mass on Sunday. The 6:00pm Mass will resume Sunday, September 11th.

    On Sunday, June 5th at 2:00pm in the Community Center, Saint Joseph Church will be sponsoring a con- cert by Pushingstone Ministries, (which includes our

    own Lori Malvey). Pushingstone Ministries is made up of local Catholic musicians who seek to spread Jesus’

    Name through song, dance and poetry.

    The concert is free with free will offering to the food pantry.

    Women’s retreat

    Sacred Heart Spirituality Center will hold its Women’s Retreat the weekend of June 10-12, 2016. The theme for this retreat is: “Live Mercy!” It will focus on how God’s abundant and unconditional Mercy towards us calls forth a gospel response to live mercy ever deeper in our own lives. A weekend experience creates a special bond and climate among the retreatants and allows the time to relax and recharge. However, if someone is unable to make the entire weekend, there is the possibility of coming on Saturday only. Please call 973-383-2620 or email [email protected] for more information.

    The registration form is on the website at :


    Beginning Monday, June 6th all weekday Masses will be at 12:05 pm.

    There will no longer be an 8:00 am Mass on Mondays or Tuesdays.

  • A tribute to my brother priest, Father Michael Burke

    It was a Saturday, May 15, 1976 when Deacon Michael Burke laid on the floor of the Cathedral of Saint John in Paterson, New Jersey as The Most Reverend Bishop Lawrence Bernard Brennan Casey placed his hands on his head and anointed the palms of his hands with Chrism as he continued the tradition of ordaining priests in the Name of the Catholic Church and in the person of Jesus Christ.

    After ordination, Father Burke went on to further studies and received his Masters in Sacred Theology and then earning a law degree where he received his “Juris Doctor” (JD) Degree. At the invitation of Bishop Frank Rodimer (the successor to bishop Casey) Father Burke was invited to work in the chancery office assisting the diocese in helping assure immigrant visas to priests, deacons, seminarians and the faithful. It was here that Father Michael fell in love with the poor.

    On the Feast of Pentecost, almost to the same exact hour of the same day, with Bishop Rodimer present, Father Michael celebrated forty years a priest in the Diocese of Paterson at Saint Brendan Church in Clifton, where he presently resides, with many parishioners and brother priests throughout the diocese.

    Father Michael is not your “typical” priest and that is probably why he has become such a great friend, confidant and source of many laughs throughout my own tenure in the diocese. Most recently, Father has been visiting Newton to celebrate the Sunday evening Masses and from time to time assisted with daily Mass when I have not been able. In this short period of time, Father Michael has endeared himself to so many of the faithful here in Newton. His unique and reverent style of celebrating Mass where he is not afraid to speak about his favorite subject, himself, coupled with his world travels and unique experience of being a priest and an attorney, all make him the lovable priest, man and friend that he has become to so many.

    Most recently, Father Michael was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and even after the misdiagnosis of it not being serious, Father received this sad news with great faith and hope. He continues to have treatments and we continue to fervently pray for his complete and quick recovery.

    But today, the Church, the diocese, Saint Brendan Church, Saint Jo
