Upcoming Events/Services


EXALTATION OF THE PRECIOUS AND LIFEGIVING CROSS: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14. The Holy Cross is celebrated as a “weapon of peace” and the source of “victory over evil” on this day.  It is traditionally a day of strict fast.  Please use this opportunity to fast for repentance, healing and forgiveness for everyone involved in the current scandal of abuse in the Catholic Church. The Church has abused; the Church has been abused; the Church needs healing.  Due to the shortage of available clergy, there will only be a 9am Liturgy at the Cathedral.  Another Liturgy will be celebrated at 7pm at Holy Spirit Church, Island Road and Church Street, Mahwah.  At both Liturgies, you will have the opportunity to venerate a relic of the Precious and LIfegiving Cross on which our Lord offered Himself in sacrifice for us

Leaders of the heavenly armies, although we are unworthy, we always beseech you, to fortify us by your prayers and to shelter us beneath the wings of your sublime glory. Watch over us who bow to you and cry out fervently: Deliver us from danger, for you are the commanders of the powers on high.
