|John Paul II Foundation of New Jersey|
Dear Members and Friends of the John Paul II Foundation, New Jersey Chapter,
I would like to cordially invite you for a prayer vigil which will take place on Saturday, October 19th at the Diocesan Shrine of Blessed John Paul II, the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary in Passaic (6 Wall Street, Passaic, NJ 07055.)
This prayer vigil is organized due to several Papal’s anniversaries that happen in October:
October 16th – the 35th anniversary of the John Paul II’s election and 32nd anniversary of the establishment of the Foundation which bears His name (our Foundation); and,
October 22nd – the anniversary of the inauguration of His pontificate - it is also the day of the Bl. John Paul II liturgical remembrance.
The vigil will begin at 8 p.m. and will end with a Mass celebrated by Rev. Jacek Marchewka, at 11 p.m.
During the vigil we will hear archival recordings from the John Paul II’s homily, we will see a short movie dedicated to the Holy Father, but most of all, we will be able, through His intercession, give thanks for all received graces and to entrust to Him all our problems. We will recall words He said to us. We will be able to share with others our own experiences and express our happiness through singing and worship prayer. Also, there will be a chance for confession.
As all are aware – we are waiting for the announcement of the date of the John Paul II’s canonization – let this be an occasion to calm down and pray.
God Bless You,
The John Paul II Foundation, New Jersey Chapter
