Welcome!

Our parish is one of the oldest Catholic churches in New Jersey located within the Archdiocese of Newark.  It was established in 1851 to serve the Catholic community in the Central New Jersey area.  Presently it serves approximately 5,000 parishioners with 1,000 Religious Education students and many groups of formation and ministry.

As you know better our parish through this website, we hope you also enjoy celebrating the sacraments in our church; keep growing spiritually and in Christian fellowship in our formation groups and initiatives; adore God keeping his commandments and find your mission in life gratefully serving God in ministry and evangelization.  We are eager that you join us giving glory to God with our life!

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Manoel J Oliveira, Pastor

Sponsors Letters and Immigration Letters

In order to get a sponsor certificate letter or Immigration letter, you need to be registered as a parishioner. A parishioner is someone who:

1. Has registered and has been active at least 2 months prior to the appointment.

2. Active (attends mass on Sundays and uses collection envelopes).

Rectory staff will verify if a person is an active parishioner. If you have not registered in our parish, please register by meeting with the receptionist Mon-Fri 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM.

Parish Registration

Thanks to all our parishioners who keep their registration active by using their parish envelopes at least twice a month. Active registration for two months is necessary to receive letters from the parish and to qualify to be a sponsor for baptism or confirmation, if all other requisites are satisfied. Please, take note that the registration in Religious Education is different from parish active registration. To register, please come to the rectory before 5:30 PM Monday through Friday with a copy of the sacraments you have received, if possible.
