If Angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion. -St. Maximilian Kolbe

Inspiration for this time when we cannot physically be together as a parish community.

This video, The Veil Removed, is a short six minute film that reveals the coming together of heaven and earth at Mass, as seen by saints and mystics, revealed by scripture and in the catechism of the Catholic Church. Visit the The Veil Removed website here.

Welcome Letter from the Pastor

Dear Parishioners and those visiting us, greetings and welcome to St. Isaac Jogues Church in Wayne and its web site. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you. The mission of the church is the mission of Jesus Christ, “to have life and have it fully.” Jesus is our priest, prophet, and king who sanctifies, teaches, governs the people of God in His church . Each parish is part of a universal church in the diocese in which it is located. It exists to carry out the mission of the local Ordinary to teach, sanctify, and govern under the ministry of the local pastor and those who assist him. “The parish is a privileged place where the faithful concretely experience the church.” (Ecclesia in America#41) The parish “is the place where all the faithful can be gathered together for Sunday celebration of the Eucharist. The parish initiates the Christian people into the ordinary expression of liturgical life-it gathers them together in this celebration, it teaches Christ’s saving doctrine, it practices charity of the Lord in good works and brotherly love.”
You cannot pray at home as at church, where there is a great multitude, where exclamations are cried out to God as from one great heart, and where there is something more: union of minds, the accord of souls, the bond of charity, the prayer of priests. (New catechism, #2179 and St. John Chrysostom) I am pleased to welcome you to our web site. Our web site which includes general information, sacramental celebration and requirements, and parish organizations, programs, offered to you as a means to assist you with becoming familiar with our parish and participate more fully within it. I encourage each of you to live your lives fully in Jesus Christ by participating fully in our parish liturgies and the various opportunities we provide through our organizations and programs. May our parish become a vital one through the power of the Resurrection and the intercession of St. Isaac Jogues. Sincerely Yours in Christ, Rev. Stephen A. Moerman, Pastor

Sacrament Information

Are you planning a wedding or need information about baptizing your child? Click here to get more information about the Sacraments. “Seated at the right hand of the Father” and pouring out the Holy Spirit on his Body which is the Church, Christ now acts through the sacraments he instituted to communicate his grace.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 1084) A sacrament is a visible sign, instituted by Christ, to give grace. There are seven sacraments which Christ instituted and entrusted to the Church. The sevenfold list of sacraments is organized into three groups: initiation (into the Church, the body of Christ) – Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist; healing sacraments – Penance and the Anointing of the Sick; and sacraments of service – Holy Orders and Matrimony. We receive God’s sanctifying grace in the sacraments. The Catechism of the Catholic Church in paragraph 1999 notes that sanctifying grace has another name: deifying grace, or the grace that makes us godlike. We receive this grace in the Sacrament of Baptism; it is the grace that makes us part of the Body of Christ, able to receive the other graces God offers and to make use of them to live holy lives.


Read & reflect on the Mass daily readings here. We all live busy lives. Sometimes it feels chaotic and noisy. Reading the Bible will bring our focus back to God & our priorities. view here
