Welcome to our Parish website!

We are a Catholic, Eucharistic community, in the Diocese of Trenton, NJ, called to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and God's love for all.  As an extended family we support one another in living the Gospel message.

Sunday MAY 31, 2020 Schedule


Our Facebook Mass will be live streamed at 9 AM.

Instructions for Receiving Communion On Sunday May 31 - The Feast of Pentecost.

There will be distribution of Communion in both churches: from 10:30  - 11:15 AM.

The instructions are very simple: arrive, enter thru the prescribed door, form a line, receive Communion, leave through the other door

  • Sacred Heart: enter thru the handicap entrance, exit through the side door
  • St. Pio: enter thru the front door, exit through the side door

We will be regulating the flow of people in the church.  There can only be 8 people in the church at a time.   Please observe social distancing and all other COVID safety precautions.

Wear your mask until you are about to receive Communion.  Hold out your hand to receive in a way the consecrated host can easily be placed into your hand without touching the minister.   Immediately consume the Host.

Those who wish to receive on the tongue need to wait until the very end.  Tell the person regulating the flow of traffic that you wish to receive on the tongue, then go back and wait in your car.  You will be waived into the church when all the others have received.


Arrive, Receive, Leave
