New liturgical and pastoral directives during the COVID-19 pandemic, including limited “in church” weekend Masses beginning June 13-14, with Mass schedules to be determined by pastors. The bishop's announcement and complete list of directives can be read on the diocesan website here: https://dioceseoftrenton.org/news/dates-announced-for-limited-in-church-masses-sacraments.
Those who are frightened, those with a COVID-19 diagnosis or symptoms, those who may be asymptomatic carriers, those not feeling well, those with underlying health conditions or those in a high-risk category should avoid public gatherings of any kind whether indoors or outdoors.
In a new statement issued May 15, Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., announced his approval of a set of directives that give permission for outdoor “in car” Masses according to good pastoral judgement of parish pastors.The announcement follows N.J. Gov. Phil Murphy’s Executive Order 142 stipulating that car gatherings for a number of purposes, including religious services, do not violate the state’s ban on gatherings. The statement and directives are available by clicking here

PLEASE NOTE: FATHER DAN IS NOT TEXTING PEOPLE ASKING THEM TO REPLY
We received a message from someone who received a text message from a scammer claiming to be Father Dan Hesko. THIS IS NOT A TEXT COMING FROM FATHER DAN. It is a scam. This has happened before and once you engage conversation the scammer will ask you to purchase gift cards and send the gift card number to them through the text. DO NOT DO THAT! If you ever receive a message and are unsure that it has come from Father Dan Hesko or St. Catherine's Church, PLEASE take the safe route and contact the church directly at 732-787-1318 or message us.
