We are a Roman Catholic Christian Community that generously shares the gift of faith that has been bestowed upon us by a loving God and Father Who sent His son Jesus and Their Holy Spirit for our spiritual and temporal well being.

You are invited to join our vibrant parish community and celebrate the Sacraments with us. We offer various educational opportunities for both adults and children, and we host social gatherings that foster an experience of our extended family, The Church.

To register in our parish, please visit the Parish Office or contact our Parish Secretary at 732-741-1714 x10
