Parish Life

Baptism & Marriage Preparation
Baptisms are each Sunday of the month at 12:00 noon.
The Parish Office must be contacted in advance.

The common policy for all the Dioceses of New Jersey requires a period of preparation for the Sacrament of Marriage,
which includes sessions with the parish priest and attendance at either the Pre-Cana conferences or the Engaged Encounter Weekend.
Therefore, arrangements are to be made at the Parish Office one year in advance, and before any social plans are finalized.
