Mission Statement
We, the Parish Family of Saint Valentine, are a Roman Catholic Community within the local church of the Archdiocese of Newark. The
celebration of the Mass and the Sacraments is central to our identity as a parochial community which worships God in fellowship with family,
neighbors and friends. Sharing the Eucharist empowers us to be a sign of the Kingdom of God present among us, yet ever becoming more a
reality, as we follow Christ, proclaiming his Gospel and witnessing to his teaching. Through liturgical worship and the ministries of the Church,
we are enabled to love each other in our service of God. THEREFORE, we the Parish Community of Saint Valentine, are dedicated to serving
others within and outside ourselves, as we strive to deepen our own commitment to the Lord and to announce the Good News of salvation in
Christ.

God of all nations, you are our Strength and Shield.
We give you thanks today for the devotion and
courage of all those who have offered military
service for this country. We ask today that you
would lift up by your Spirit those who are at war;
encourage and heal those in hospitals or mending
their wounds at home, guard those in any need or
trouble; hold safely in your hands all military
families and bring the returning troops to joyful
reunion and tranquil life at home. Give to us, your
people, grateful hearts and a united will to honor
these men and woman and hold them always in our
love and our prayers until your world is perfected in
peace and all wars cease. Rev. Dr. Phillips
