Our Lady of the Magnificat Parish in Kinnelon, NJ in communion with the Bishop of Paterson is rooted in the tradition of the Catholic Church. We seek to deepen our love of God to live and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. We aim to nourish our members through prayer, outreach, education and joy-filled worship. We strive to build the Kingdom of God by serving the needs of one another and those of our neighbors.
#iGiveCatholic is a one-day online giving event in arch/dioceses across the nation (and the world!) to come together and raise as many charitable dollars as possible for Catholic parishes, schools, and ministries on #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017. Last year, #iGiveCatholic raised more than $1.8 million for participating arch/dioceses. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season and helps us to focus on giving, rather than receiving.
This year, all proceeds given by OLM parishioners to iGiveCatholic Catholic will go towards the 3 following focuses of youth ministry: Refurbishing the youth room, establishing scholarships for teens who would like to attend upcoming events or retreats, and implementing the Lifeteen program, which is a ministry geared specifically to high school teens.
More information on iGiveCatholic can be found on our parish website www.olmchurch.org, or you can contact OLM’s Youth Minister, Kim Oliveira, on 973-349-8341.
