Eight men to be ordained May 25
As most Catholics know, the American bishops have spoken strongly in defense of religious freedom with their recent statement, “Our First, Most Cherished Liberty.” Catholic and Protestant theologians have joined the bishops in defending the centrality of religious freedom in American life.

NEWARK—Over $250,000 was raised to support the faith initiatives of the Archdiocese of Newark at the second annual Nourishing Your Faith dinner, which was held Nov. 10 at The Venetian, Garfield.
According to the archdiocese, the event was the largest fund-raising dinner of the year with proceeds benefiting the men’s and women’s commissions, evangelization efforts and Catholic education.
NEWARK-With the emphasis on pre-registration, organizers of both the annual Catholic Men's Conference and Women's Day of Reflection are making final plans for this month's consecutive Saturday evangelization events.

The Women's Day of Reflection will be held Saturday, March 20, at SHU's Jubilee Hall.
I smiled to myself at a pre-Christmas luncheon a few weeks ago as I listened to some of our Transfiguration Academy faculty members reminisce how, when they were children, they organized areas in or around their homes, either with dolls or other playmates, into mini classrooms where they could be the teachers. It seemed a hint of an early calling to this most noble profession, perhaps influenced in part by those who taught them.
I smiled, because it helped me think back to my own early childhood years and the minialtar I created on the top of my bedroom bookcase and the vestments cut from old sheets and marked with a simple cross that I wore, to offer a private Mass with my teddy bear in attendance. (Somehow, he didn't answer any of the Latin responses!)
Not every budding teacher creates a childhood classroom, nor does every future priest establish his own mini-sanctuary. Indeed, in these more recent decades, many teachers and priests (and deacons and Religious) only come to discern a call later in life, after having already pursued one or several other professions.
AAA Assists Most-Vulnerable Neighbors
On Dec. 14, 2008, an advertorial-a paid advertisement that expresses an opinion on a current events topic-paid for by the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) appeared in numerous newspapers in the state. The advertorial presented the group's opinion on the subjects of school choice and educational reform.
The author, NJEA President Joyce Powell, claimed that advocates of reform are trying to both gut the state's public school system and eliminate tenure in favor of "patronage positions to be filled at the whim of administration and politicians." The author used a very broad brush to spread her words around, but she succeeded only in painting herself into a corner.
Like the other Catholic dioceses in New Jersey and a broad coalition of civil rights, faith-based and parent organizations throughout the state, the Archdiocese of Newark is a proponent of school choice. We make no apologies for this stance. None of the Catholic dioceses has taken a position on eliminating tenure.
A few simple words, but they speak volumes and speak them loudly.
to the Bishops, Priests, Deacons, Men, Women Religious and all Lay Faithful "On Christian Hope."
Now the question immediately arises: what sort of hope could ever justify the statement that, on the basis of that hope and simply because it exists, we are redeemed? And what sort of certainty is involved here?
The grants were announced as the archdiocese gears up for its annual Stewardship Day event, which will be held Nov. 3, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Paramus Catholic High School, 425 Paramus Rd.
NEWARK-Through the work of the Archdiocese of Newark's Catholic Charities' Refugee Resettlement and Human Trafficking programs, a former trafficking victim was reunited with her nine-year-old son on July 26 at Newark Liberty International Airport after more than four years of forced separation.
Inspired by this reunion, officials at Catholic Charities are hoping they will be able to report more happy endings in the near future. The group is involved in seven active cases of trafficking victims waiting to be reunited with their children.
Two years ago Lucy Magambi told her harrowing story to The Catholic Advocate (see the Nov. 23, 2005 edition), speaking under the alias "Mary." She came to America in 2003 from Kenya to work for a family in Bergen County as a housekeeper and nanny. She left her young son Brian behind with the hopes of making a new life for them in the United States.
Celebrating History and Treasures of the Church
Many of us have had the opportunity to visit Europe and Latin America. Invariably, upon return, we recount our experiences to our friends, whether they want to listen or not. Almost without exception, we describe the magnificent churches and cathedrals of places such as France, Mexico, England, Colombia or Italy.
