Catholic Cemeteries provide food to the area’s poor, low income, and homeless. The funds, donations collected during the Christmas season, will help support the work of The Missionary Sisters of Charity and The Emergency Food and Nutrition Network.
The Missionary Sisters of Charity, founded by Saint Mother Teresa and located in Newark, provides food and shelter primarily for women in the community. The center helps with daily meals, clothing, and career and emotional counseling.
The Emergency Food and Nutrition Network, located in East Orange, coordinates and supports a network of food pantries, donor churches, schools, community groups, and volunteers by providing assistance and emergency food supplies to 50 food centers in the Archdiocese of Newark.
The mission of Catholic Cemeteries, a ministry of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark, is to serve our Catholic faith, community, and families by performing the Corporal Work of Mercy of interring the dead, the Spiritual Work of Mercy of praying for the dead, and ministering to the living with respect and dignity through the guidance of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
