Whether you are a new member of our parish or have been part of St. Mary's for years, you will find in these pages the many programs, activities, and services available to you at St. Mary's. We discovered years ago that parishioners flourish in their service to Christ when they are serving in the area of their gifts and in conjunction with their God-given uniqueness. Ask God in prayer to aid you to discover your gifts and where you might use them most effectively.

What is Simbang Gabi? Simbang Gabi is not just a tradition, it is the spiritual preparation for Christmas, in commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ. The Simbang Gabi is also seen as a way of requesting blessings from the Lord, as most people believe that if one completes the whole series of nine night Masses, wishes will be granted. Join us for 9 days of Novena Masses in different churches in Ocean County. We will host the 8th day Novena Mass Saturday, December 17, 2016 at St. Mary’s of the Pines Church beginning with the Rosary at 7:00 pm followed by Mass at 7:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served after Mass in the Parish Center.
