Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Information Night:  Wednesday, September 17th at 7:30 pm

RCIA is the process of initiation into the Catholic Church. We invite you, or someone you know, to grow in faith and to be part of our Catholic community.   The RCIA process will resume at St. Catharine with an information session on Wednesday, September 17th at 7:30pm in the Ministry Center (formerly the convent bldg). 

The RCIA process is for:

  • Adults (18 & older) who are interested in becoming Catholic, including those who are not baptized and those who are baptized in another Christian faith.
  • Adult Catholics who are in need of receiving First Communion or Confirmation.
  • RCIA is also for Catholics who have not been attending church and want to renew their faith; get reacquainted with the church.

If interested, please contact Fr. Thomas Blind at 201-445-3703 x303 or

Support Groups

“In the heart of every caregiver is a knowing that we are all connected. As I do for you, I do for me.”    ~  Tia Walker

If you are a caregiver and would like to learn more about resources to help you and your loved one as well as to find support from others in a faith-based environment, this is the group for you. Please come to the next Caregiver Support Group on Thursday, September 4 from 11:30am-12:30pm in the Ministry Center first floor Meeting Room.   If you have any questions, or if you are unable to leave your loved one alone to attend, please call Mary Alice Coghlan at 201-652-4305.

                                                                    BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT GROUP
                                              'Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.’

The parishes of St. Catharine, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and St. Gabriel are jointly sponsoring a Bereavement Support Group which will meet on Wednesday evenings in the fall in the Ministry Cetner at St. Catharine. You need not be a parishioner to attend. The group will meet from 7:30am-9pm and run for nine consecutive weeks beginning on September 17th and ending on November 12th.

The intent of these meetings is to support one another during the beginning stages of the grief process. Only those people who are presently going through grief or have experienced loss can relate.  Being a part of a grief group is a way of helping others which can contribute to our own healing. In this group, we stress confidentiality and mutual support. There are no "shoulds" in grief. We let others who have gone through the grief process help us understand
and deal with our grief. We learn to lean into our pain. It cannot be outrun. We cannot go around it, over it, or under it. We need to go through it; we need to be good to ourselves, putting balance into our lives through prayer, reading, resting, relaxation and work. Grief takes time. Unrealistic expectations undermine the healing process.  Please contact Monica Seibert for more information and/or to register at 201-652-3388 or

The St. Cajetan Ministry Network (parishes of St. Catharine’s and St. Anne’s) invites all unemployed/underemployed men & women to join their ministry which provides support through prayer & helpful guidance in the job search process.  If you have any questions or would like to participate in the Ministry please call: Ed Grzesiak 201-321-5144, Eamon Jennings 917-841-2558, John Lederer 201-286-9354, Lou Cuomo 201-657-3838, or Steve Zmuda 201-819-9026.  We continue to seek possible employment opportunities. If you know of a job opening and/or the hiring manager’s name in a company, please email them to or drop them off to the rectory marked "St. Cajetan Opportunities" and we will forward them on to the group.

Upcoming Dates:
Thur., August 21 - St. Catharine’s Ministry Center Mtg. Rm. (first floor) – 7-9pm
Sat., August 23 - St. Anne's Faith Center, Fair Lawn (rectory, lower level) – 10am-noon
