Pastoral Care

Our Pastoral Ministry Vision

Saint Mary's Parish in Pompton  Lakes, New Jersey, within the Diocese of Paterson is a unique Christian community, rooted in the Catholic and Franciscan traditions.  Here religious and laity strive to be equal partners in ministry.  We seek to live and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We welcome, celebrate and nourish one another through outreach, evangelization and joy-filled worship.
