SAVE THE CONVENT FUND We are looking for patrons who would commit $10.00 or more every month to help defray the maintenance cost of the convent. Our total target is $500.00 per month. We do not want to sell the con-vent, instead we want to create activities like spir-itual retreats, rental space for baby shower, etc. that could increase the revenue for the parish at the same time. Collection of this fund is ongoing. If you are interested to participate, please call Carmen Rosario

SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME 7/29/18
COLLECTION For July 14-15 2018 Regular Collection: $3,520.00 MISSION SUNDAY:$1,598.00 2nd Collections: Debt Reduction $153.00 Maintenance and Repairs: $0. Fuel and Electricity $59.00 Archdiocesan Assessment $0. Special Collection: Candles: $429.00
We have set $6,000.00 as the goal for us in the regular collection to reach each week, excluding a 2nd collection and spe-cial collections.
MASS INTENTION FOR SUNDAYS The Sunday Mass Intention has been $20. The donation for weekday Masses stays at $10.00 per Mass. There are many Masses available for your Mass Intentions . Please go to the office for your intentions.
BANK BILL PAYMENT SERVICE One of our parishioners is using Bank Bill Payment Ser-vice for her contribution to St. Nicholas Church. It means a check is sent by the bank to St. Nicholas Church in a regular basis and without interruption. This is hel-pful especially when you are on vacation. Thus is ideal when you cant attend Sunday Mass for a valid reason. The church utilities and financial obligation do not stop whenever you are away. We hope that more paris-hioners will use this service from the bank so that we can maintain a healthy budgeting for our parish. You may go to your bank for more information. Thank you for your love and generosity.
FLEA MARKET Flea Market every Saturday in the summer. Vendors should bring their own tables. We charge $15.00 for each table. Please sign a contract in the office.
JULY AND AUGUST From Monday to Friday, the Masses will be at 12:00 Noon (English Mass in the Retreat Center), 7:00 PM (English Mass in the Retreat Center) and 7:00 PM (Spanish Mass in school chapel).
BELL TOWER EXTERIOR WATERPROOFING REPAIRS
The time has come to stabilize and maintain the structu-ral integrity of the Bell Tower. The 100% repointing of all Bell Tower masonry and other specific repairs would cost $120,000.00 to the parish. The Bell Towel is cu-rrently experiencing wter and moisture infiltration throughout the Bell Tower I would like to announce that the Archdiocese of Newark has approved the request of the parish for a loan in the amount of $120,000.00 for this Project. The work will start in the month of July and it will take five to six weeks. Let us pray for this Project. CENTRAL AVENUE WOULD NOT BE THE SAME WITHOUT THE BELL TOWER OF ST. NICKS!
NON-ATTENDANCE PARISHIONERS Let us acknowledge the generosity of parishioners who remain faithful to St. Nicholas Church. These parishioners continue to send substantial weekly contributions to St. Nicks. Let us express our prayers and gratitude to them . JERSEY CITY RESIDENTS: Helen Gilson, John Rondinone, Virgilio Ronquillo
NON-JERSEY CITY RESIDENTS: Aloysius Tattam, Jean Guittari, Antoinette Frees, Joan Campana, Joseph and Lucy Campana, Thomas Campana
