Registration We welcome you to the Parish Community of
Saint Cassian, and invite you to register with us by contacting our Parish Office during office hours. You must be registered in the Parish for Baptism and the Religious Education Programs. We urge all parishioners to make regular use of the envelopes. If you are moving from the Parish, please notify the
Parish Office.
Attention Parishioners-Recent changes in laws and regulations governing hospitals have made it necessary for hospitals
to tighten the access of outside visitors, including clergy, to information about patients in the hospital. New policies now in
effect require that patients must request that clergy from the
patient’s faith community be contacted and allowed to visit. Clergy will not be allowed to visit unless this request is made. If you
are or a loved one is hospitalized, please call the Parish Office
to let us know, or contact the chaplain in the hospital.

Pray the Rosary!
Lenten Wisdom from St. Leo the Great
We have been taught by our Redeemer, “man does not live by bread alone, but on every word of God,” and so it is right that all
Christians, no matter how much they fast, should cultivate the desire to satisfy themselves with the “Word of God” rather than bodily
food. Therefore, let us begin this Lenten season with eagerness, ready to progress in devotion to our Lord, not by an empty fasting or
almsgiving, but through generous compassion and good will.
Let works of mercy be our delight, and let them be the food that fills us for eternity. Let us rejoice in the satisfaction of the poor when
we give from our bounty. Let us delight in the clothing of those whose nakedness we have covered. Let our compassion and generosity touch the sick in their illness or infirmities, the exiles in their hardships, the orphans in their destitution, and the widows in their
sadness … No one’s income is small, whose heart is big; and the measure of one’s mercy and goodness does not depend on the
size of one’s means. Wealth of goodwill is never lacking, even in a slender purse.
Lenten observances, rightly followed, can make hatred turn into affection and enmity turn to peace; wrath can be quenched by meekness, and wrongs forgiven by gentleness. They are a way that God’s mercy can enter your life, sins be forgiven, and Easter be rightly celebrated.
So we should forgive faults, loosen bonds, wipe out offenses, and let go of vengeance. In this way, the Easter festival will find us all
happy and innocent by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ who with the Father and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns forever.
The Word Among Us, Lenten edition
Spirituality
Friday Eucharistic Adoration
Second Friday, March 13
You have been chosen and called to come to the presence of the Lord. When we listen to the Lord we
become open to what He calls us to be. Come and be before the Lord and listen for His message to you.
We will be providing this beautiful opportunity for you to come into the Presence of our Lord on the Second
Friday of every month after the 8:15am Mass until 3:00pm for the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
Come and be with our Blessed Lord. He is waiting for you. He seeks your presence and your love. It is a
gift that can transform our very life.
If you are interested and available to commit to a monthly Holy Hour, please contact Leslie Penny at [email protected]
or call Lee Ann Rivera at the Parish Office at (973) 744-2850, x5060.

ARCHDIOCESE OF NEWARK
2015 LENTEN REGULATIONS
1.
The days of both Fast and Abstinence during Lent are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. If possible,
the fast on Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) as the “paschal
fast” to honor the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus, and to prepare ourselves to share more fully
and to celebrate more readily His Resurrection. The other Fridays of Lent are days of Abstinence.
i On a day of Fast, only one (1) full meal is permitted, and two smaller meals, which, if added together, would not exceed the
main meal in quantity.
i Those between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast. Those who have reached the age of 14 are obliged by the law
of abstinence.
2.
The obligation to observe the laws of Fast and Abstinence “substantially”, or as a whole, is a serious obligation.
3.
The Fridays of the year, outside of Lent, are designated as days of penance, but each individual may substitute for the
traditional abstinence from meat some other practice of voluntary self-denial as penance.
4.
The time for fulfilling the Pascal Precept (Easter Duty*) extends from the First Sunday of Lent, February 22, 2015, to The
Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, May 31, 2015.
*Canon 920, §1. All the faithful, after they have been initiated into the Most Holy Eucharist, are bound by the obligation
of receiving Communion at least once a year.
