virtualgivingtreeWelcome and thank you for thinking of others this Christmas time.

We are not able to have our normal "Christmas Giving Tree" displayed in our church this year, due to the pandemic. So, we are going to have a "Virtual Giving Tree" on our website.

The St. Vincent de Paul Society will once again be selling wreath sponsorships through “Wreaths Across America” to be placed on the final resting places of service members interred at Atlantic View Cemetery in Manasquan. Wreaths sponsorships are $15.00 per wreath with $5.00 of each purchase returned to the St. Vincent de Paul Society for their charitable endeavors.  Due to the Pandemic, all sponsorships must be made online at “”.  Once on the website, select “fundraising”, then select the wreath purchase you wish to make.  After the wreath selection, go to “select group you wish to support” and type in NJ0035P.  That will ensure that the St. Vincent de Paul Society will receive credit for the purchase, and the wreaths will be delivered to Atlantic View Cemetery.   Continue to follow the remaining directions to complete the purchase. The cutoff date for wreath sponsorships is December 2, 2020.  For more information, please contact Neil Scully at (732) 456-2123.
