Welcome to Church of the Presentation, a parish which serves many and welcomes all. The years since the founding of our parish in 1961 have seen incredible growth from the original 270 to over 3500 families, coming here from over 130 zip codes! We are one of the largest Catholic parishes in northern New Jersey, and “welcoming” is the word most often used to describe us. Passing on and learning about our faith, nurturing our spiritual growth, being better stewards of our earth and outreach to others are all areas in which we focus our energies.
Next time you’re at the parish, take a moment to visit our “information desk” located in the hallway outside of our kitchen. It is staffed from 9am-1pm each Sunday morning and after 6:30pm Mass on Sunday evenings to help answer any questions you may have.
We realize people look for a parish for many reasons. Whether you are looking to worship with us, receive support and/or get involved, know you are welcome and will find a home here.
