October 2nd - Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels

This is our first Liturgy of the school year, marking the 138th anniversary of the founding of our School by Sr. Nonna Dunphy.  At this liturgy we will mandate 17 Eucharist Ministers for service at Holy Angels and dedicate S. Genevieve Kelleher Hall.   Most Reverend John W. Flesey, pastor of Most Blessed Sacrament Parish in Franklin Lakes, NJ will be the main celebrant.

Upcoming Events - October 17th

October 17th is the UN International Day for the Eradication of Poverty and a day observed in the SSND community. Since government programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) don't cover the purchase of diapers many families cannot afford to buy disposable diapers or they are forced to reuse diapers.  Therefore Outreach will sponsor a diaper drive.  We will be collecting diapers from Tuesday, October 17th – Friday, October 20th 

Trick or Treat UNICEF

Trick or Treat for UNICEF Students who would like to participate should come to the Campus Ministry office to pick up an individual Trick-or-treat for UNICEF box.  Individual boxes must be returned by Thursday, November 2nd.
