Mass for the Third Week of Advent





December Newsletter includes the Pastor’s Message for Christmas and events through the Advent and Christmas Seasons.



We are quickly approaching Christmas. In order to “Make way for the Lord”, we will have 2 priests hearing confessions on Monday, December 14th at 7 pm in the church, as well as Saturday at 1 pm in the parking lot behind the church, weather-permitting. In case of inclement weather it will be in church – enter through the center front door.

Because of the COVID 19 restrictions we are limited to 150 people at each Mass Our Masses for Christmas will be:

Christmas Eve at 4:00 in church; 4:15 pm in Herron Hall (school); 6:00 pm in church; 10:00 pm in church.

On Christmas Day they will be: 8 am, 10 am, 12 noon (all in church).

All Masses will require pre-registration (see our website www.stachurchbloomfield.com). Please bring your email confirmation with you. If your plans change and you cannot attend the Mass that you have reserved please call the parish center by December 23rd so that the spot may be available for someone else. The link to reserve your spot at Mass will appear on our website on December 21st. Entrance for the church Masses will be through the Handicapped door only and will be opened one half hour before each Mass and closed when we reach our capacity of 150.




The Archdiocese of Newark produced a short video about Mercy House, which is one of the organizations that the Advent Giving Tree donated to.
