Rejoice in the Lord

Rejoice in the Lord is a new instrument of communication for our Archdiocese. The purpose of this newsletter is to strengthen relationships with you and all the people of the Archdiocese. We hope that Rejoice in the Lord will serve as an important means of keeping you informed about important matters of concern to this Archdiocese and, when appropriate, to the Church in the U.S. and throughout the world.

As you are aware, during the past 18 months especially, our Church has been confronted with a series of complex, controversial issues that have caused pain and confusion to many throughout the Archdiocese of Newark and beyond. Our efforts to communicate our actions, and the rationale behind our decisions, have not always been as effective as we hoped. Hence, we have developed this new way of communicating with you.”

— Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin, C.Ss.R., Archbishop of Newark.
