Dear Friends,
From the very moment of His
Resurrection Jesus called on His
Apostles to “Go out and Baptize all
nations, In the name of the Father
and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
Here at St. Joseph of the Palisades we seek
to fulfill that mandate. Every month infants and
small children are brought to the fountain of life
which is Baptism. And every year adults come to be
Baptized, Confirmed and initiated into the life of
Christ through Holy Eucharist.
As we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus
and His incredible Mercy we welcome these adults
Baptized this Easter:
Lima Icela, Lopez Freddy, Par Esteban
And on Divine Mercy Sunday, next week we
congratulate and affirm the faith of these who are to
complete their initiation into our faith through
Confirmation and First Eucharist:
Cintia Alvarado, Mario Alvarado, Sasha Antequera,
Elena Argueta, Joan Calarco Ortiz, Paul Chevez,
Dayana Chilchoa, Yulissa Chilchoa, Cecilia
Colocho, Yakelin A. Coxaj, Jose Crisantos, Octavio

Our Catholic Faith:
Comes through Baptism
Please share the news: The Lord said: “Go out
and Baptize all nations, in the Name of the
Father and of the Son and of The Holy Spirit.” This is the
way our Catholic faith becomes part of us. For anyone
interested in becoming Catholic, now is the time to begin
learning what we believe. Please encourage family or friends
without Baptism to contact the parish before Easter of this
year so that they might be included in the learning and
preparation program for the year ahead.

2015 Anniversary Liturgies
The Archdiocese is once again preparing the
annual tradition of honoring those couples who
will be celebrating five, twenty-five and fifty years
of Christian marriage in the year 2015. These anniversary
liturgies will be celebrated by Archbishop John J. Myers in
the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark as
April 19: 3 p.m.: 50 years (All Counties)
May 3: 3 p.m.: 25 years & 5 years (All Counties)
It is our desire that every couple in the Archdiocese
deserving of such recognition be present at the appropriate
liturgy. The presence of a large number of couples will give
favorable witness to the strength and stability of Christian
marriage in today’s society.
Parishioners interested in celebrating one of these
anniversaries are asked to call the Rectory to sign up.
