Sacrament of Marriage

The common policy for marriage in all Catholic parishes of New Jersey requires couples to begin preparation at least 1 year prior to the planned wedding date. It is advisable for couples to contact the parish before any other arrangements are made for the wedding day.

Anointing of the Sick/
Visitation of the Sick

The Anointing of the Sick is available to seriously ill members of our parish at home or in hospital. Please call the Rectory to make arrangements. For legal reasons, many hospitals no longer inform parishes when a member is hospitalized; so please inform the Rectory that a hospitalized paritioner would like a parish visit.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the Church’s process for adults and children 7 and older to prepare to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.

Ministries at Sacred Heart


These lay “Ministers of the Word” assist at parish masses by proclaiming the first two readings during the Liturgy of the Word. They may also be called upon to read the Prayer of the Faithful or General Intercessions.

Eucharistic Ministers

These lay individuals are appointed by our Archbishop to distribute the Body and Blood of Christ during mass. They also bring the Eucharist to homebound parishioners, and those in local hospitals requesting such visits.

Altar Servers

Youth in grades three and above may, after training, assist the priest during mass.

Our parish Sunday liturgies are enhanced by organ, piano, and guitar music. The parish choir sings on Sundays at the 10:30 a.m. mass, and at special masses throughout the year.
