How To Report Abuse

Archdiocese takes very seriously any and all allegations of sexual misconduct by members of the clergy, religious and lay staff of the Archdiocese.  We encourage anyone with knowledge of an act of sexual misconduct to inform us immediately so that we may take appropriate action to protect others and provide support to victims of sexual abuse.

Individuals who wish to report an allegation of sexual misconduct may do so by calling the Archdiocesan Office of Child and Youth Protection 902-407-3256.

Hospital Privacy

The current privacy laws regarding patients in the hospital do not allow the hospitals/pastoral care office to contact parishes if their parishioners are in the hospital.  If you or a loved one are going into the hospital and want a priest to visit please call the rectory to make arrangements.

Bereavement Ministry

"Blessed are they who mourn for they shall be comforted"

Our Lady of the Lake's Bereavement Ministry offers a comfortable and safe environment where those who are grieving the loss of a loved one, may seek support from others who are experiencing a similar loss.

Sessions are held on alternating Tuesdays, September through June, at 7:30pm in the OLL rectory. A modified summer schedule is also offered.

If you would like some company on your journey or would like to experience God's grace as you walk this difficult path, please contact one of our facilitators, JoAnn Palmisano 973-585-7278 or Joan Stern 973-239-9113 for more information.

Your presence is always welcome!
