How Do I?

  Register at the Parish
To register at the Parish, please call the Parish Office—at 908-232-1162—and speak with the Receptionist. Information may be given over the phone, or a registration form can be sent to you. Our normal office hours are Monday – Thursday 9am – 3pm and Friday 9am – 12pm.
  Schedule a Baptism
Baptisms are celebrated every other month, excluding the Season of Lent,  for registered members of our Parish Community. Parents wishing to have a child baptized are
expected to attend one Baptism Preparation Session if they have never had a child baptized or if this will be their first baptism at Our Lady of Lourdes. Parents of other children who have not attend a preparation session in three years or more are also expected to attend.  Please contact the Parish Office to register for one of these sessions. We encourage you to attend while you are still expecting.
  Schedule a Wedding
One of the couple should be member of the Our Lady of Lourdes. It is the Common Policy of all the Bishops of NJ that marriage dates must be scheduled at least twelve months before the wedding to allow time for evaluation and preparation.
For more information and scheduling, please contact the Parish Office at 908-232-1162, to schedule an appointment with a priest or deacon. No dates can be consider final until this meeting with the priest or deacon.
  Become a Catholic
R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
R.C.I.A. is the process through which people become fully initiated members of the Roman Catholic Church. With its vision that includes a life of ongoing conversion, RCIA begins with Inquiry, the first in four-stage process. Inquiry meetings are for any of the following:
1) anyone interested in becoming Catholic;
2) baptized Catholics who have not received Holy Communion and/or Confirmation;
3) Catholics who wish to update their faith; or
4) individuals in interfaith marriages who wish to gain some understanding of their partner's faith.
Although R.C.I.A. is a yearlong process, the formal phase begins in September and continues through Pentecost. Candidates, sponsors and team members meet on a regular basis. If you are interested in learning more about RCIA or becoming part of the process, please call Fr. Bill Benedetto at 908-232-1162.  Or you can email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
