Election 2018

For a democracy to function, all of its citizens need to be informed and participate. One vital way of participating is choosing our representatives. Over the next few weeks, in preparation for the November 6th election, there will be a discussion of some issues in the bulletin from a Catholic perspective. A brochure that highlights Catholic Social Teaching is available here.

This brochure has been created by the Social Justice Committee. The members of the committee are Barbara Barba, Therese Crowley, Father Pat Donohue, Gerry Drummond, Julia Farrell, Rory Klenck, Margaret Manley, Deacon John Sylvester and Grace Tagliareni.

Are You Someone Or Do You Know Someone Who…

  • Has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic?
  • Has a child over the age of seven who has not been baptized?
  • Was baptized Catholic as a child, but has not celebrated the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist?

We offer an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn more about our faith. Sessions focus on the teachings and experience of Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist during the Easter season. There are separate sessions for children or youth. You are welcome to participate in the process with your questions, your insights and your faith story in a warm accepting setting.

For information please contact Kathy Sylvester at Kathy@stmarysdumont.org or leave a message for her at the parish office 201-384-0557.
