Our parish will welcome police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical service personal who serve our Princeton Community at a special Blue Mass on Thursday, November 30 at 10:00 am. The Blue Mass is named after the blue color of police uniforms. The mass is celebrated to remember the lives of first responders who died in the line of duty, and to offer our prayerful gratitude and support for the continued safety of those who serve and protect our community. All are welcome to join with our community's first responders at this mass.
Our parish will gather for our annual Mass of Remembrance in memory of our faithful departed, particularly those who have died in the past year on Thursday, November 2 at 7:00 pm. A reception will follow in the Spiritual Center. All are welcome. Click here for more information.
During the month of November when we are called in a special way to remember "our brothers and sisters who have fallen asleep in the hope of the resurrection", our parish will be creating an Altar of Remembrance before the image of St. Joseph, the patron of a happy death. You are invited to place a small framed picture of your beloved deceased on the altar. Our Altar of Remembrance will remain until the beginning of Advent. Please write your name and phone number on the back of the frame so that they may be returned to you. As we remember our deceased, we are reminded that through Jesus' death and resurrection, life is changed, not ended in death.
