RELIGIOUS EDUCATION REGISTRATION
Online registration for the 2020-2021
Notre Dame will be helping out those in need this Christmas with our Giving Tree, however we will be doing it little differently due to the pandemic. In lieu of individual tags on a tree there is one big tag with specific items requested by our friends at Resurrection Parish in Jersey City, St. Rose of Lima/ New Community Corp. in Newark, St. Joseph Center in Elizabeth and IHN which is now Family Promise of Essex County (FPE).
Clothing can be wrapped, toys should remain unwrapped and all gifts can be dropped off in the bins marked “Giving Tree Gifts” in the Parish Center Foyer (we will not be using the big brown box this year).
Gifts should be dropped off by Monday, December 7, 2020.
For those who are unable to come to the church and pick up a tag, you can print them out here Giving Tree Tag
You need to use one tag for each gift. Feel free to share with family and friends looking for a way to help those in need this Christmas.
Shining the Light of Christ Annual Appeal
Archdiocese of Newark
We, the Parish of Notre Dame, are a community striving in Word, Worship and Service to proclaim the mission of Jesus Christ.
Through the Holy Spirit’s power we are each called to spiritual growth and together to become a loving, caring, sharing, family.
Through our common Baptism, we are invited to use our distinct gifts to motivate one another to a greater awareness of our Christian vocation.
We acknowledge our responsibilities to reach out to the spiritual and temporal needs of others in response to the gospel challenge of Jesus, “Whatsoever you do to one of these, the least of My disciples, you have done for Me.”
Strengthened by the power of the Risen Lord and through the intercession of Mary, our Mother, we will journey together in courage and hope.

“Notre Dame” means “Our Lady” and is a reference to the Blessed Virgin Mary who is the patron of our parish. Mary was the Mother of Jesus and has been given the title “Mother of God” and “Mother of the Church.” Mary is the mother of all who follow Christ.
Notre Dame Church has an outdoor and indoor shrine to Mary. The indoor shrine includes a beautiful hand carved statue from Italy which was commissioned by our parish. The statue of Mary with the child Jesus is very popular among our parishioners, young and old, who spend time in prayer before the shrine.
Please remember to say a prayer for Notre Dame when visiting either shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary in our parish.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and the our of our death. Amen.

Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!
