Special Collection

Read Bishop Checchio’s Letter regarding the Diocesan Hurricane Relief Collection

Diocesan Update: September 13, 2017 – In light of the recent natural disasters that have affected so many in the southern region of the United States and in Mexico, Bishop Checchio has advised that the optional second collection taken on September 9th/10th at our parish, originally intended to assist in the relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana, also will be used to assist with the relief efforts for Hurricane Irma in Florida and the deadly magnitude-8.1 earthquake in Mexico. Please give generously, as your means allow, to help our brothers and sisters who are most in need at this time.  And please continue to pray for all hurricane and earthquake victims, especially for the deceased and for families who have lost a loved one.


If it is more convenient, you may also donate online here or write a check made payable to “Diocese of Metuchen” with “Disaster Relief” in the subject line and mail to: Disaster Relief Donation, Diocese of Metuchen, P.O. Box 191, Metuchen, NJ 08840-0191. The diocese will accept online and mail-in donations through September 30th and then the diocese will forward all monies collected to the Catholic Charities in the dioceses affected by the storm.

RCIA Inquiry Sessions

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a program for adults who desire to become fully initiated members of the Roman Catholic Church. The goal of the RCIA process is full, conscious and active participation in a deepening life with Jesus Christ within his Catholic Church. The RCIA helps adults grow in their relationship with God, become familiar with   Roman Catholic teachings and practices, get acquainted with our faith community, and involved in service within the community as a whole.

We welcome you to attend an RCIA inquiry session on Thursday, September 21st OR Thursday, September 28th, at 7:30 pm in Rooms D/E. Members of the team will be available to answer your questions and explain the process. No commitment is necessary.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is open to individuals who are not baptized, as well as those who already are baptized and have not received the sacraments of First Eucharist and Confirmation.

If you are unable to attend an inquiry session but are interested in RCIA, call the parish office for more information or contact Deacon Patrick Cline at
