Baptisms will ordinarily take place every Sunday at 1:30 p.m. in the parish church in Barnegat. Baptism is reserved for the children of registered parishioners. Participation in a Baptismal Preparation Session is required for both parents. Godparents are to be Catholics in good standing. If the Godparents are not registered members of St. Mary’s Parish, they will need a sponsorship letter from the parish at which they are registered.
St. Mary’s Eucharistic Ministers of the Eucharist serve at Masses, nursing homes, Southern Ocean County Hospital, and also bring Communion to our homebound parishioners. Anyone who is a Catholic in good standing is invited to learn more about becoming an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist.
