June 2020
Dear Friends of Maris Stella,
It is with great joy that we make plans to welcome you back to celebrate Liturgy with us in Maris Stella Chapel. Please refer to the Mass Schedule located on the Home Page of our Website: www.marisstella.org or our FaceBook Page. Please note the Chapel Guidelines for attending Mass that will maintain everyone’s safety and health. These Guidelines follow the Directives of the CDC, the State of NJ and The Diocese of Trenton.

It is very important for anyone who is experiencing any symptoms of illness or has health issues that would make them vulnerable is urged to remain home. The Dispensation from the Obligation to attend Sunday Mass continues through to September 6th. Saint Francis Parish continues to Livestream the Sunday 10:00am Mass on the St Francis Parish FaceBook Page.

We also look forward to welcoming our first Vacation Guests accommodated in the individual houses and apartments who will be arriving the week of June 29th. Guidelines for the Safety and Health of all have been sent to all guests.

The Summer of 2020 will certainly be different and with patience, understanding, cooperation and most of all, trust in God and each other, we will have an enjoyable, fun and relaxing summer at Maris Stella. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call or email Sister Mary at 609-494-1182 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are very grateful for all of you who are so supportive to Maris Stella over the years. We continue to keep all of you and your intentions in our prayers and depend on your prayers for us. You are our “Summer Family” and we look forward to seeing you soon!

God Bless you!
