Help Sacred Heart continue its mission of Being Disciples & Making Disciples during this difficult time.
A special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, or no háblan ingles. There is a place for you if you are over 60 but not grown up yet or a teenager growing up too fast.
We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, NY Jets, Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and Chicago Bears fans; Starving artists, tree-huggers, those in recovery, and those who are still addicted. There is a place for you whether you can sing like Pavarotti or can’t carry a tune in a bucket. We welcome those who are just browsing, got bored at the bus stop, just woke up, or just got out of jail.
We don’t care if it's your first Sunday at church or if you’ve been to Church more times than the Pope. We welcome you if you're having problems, feeling overwhelmed, or if you don’t like “organized religion.” If you are looking for a fresh start, a fresh cup of coffee, or a hug from a new friend, there is a place for you here. We welcome those who are wearing “church clothes” and those who are wearing their only clothes.
We're glad to see those who are inked, pierced, or both. Whether you're someone who could use a prayer right now, haven’t been to church since Aunt Carol’s funeral, or just got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake, we welcome you with open arms. We welcome seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts and jaded cynics, the lost, the found… and you!
We hope to see you soon,
Fr. Rich Kelly

Visiting? Here's what to expect:
What is the service like?
Modern. Relevant. A typical service lasts about an hour. The music is current. The vibe is loving and inclusive.
Come As You Are
Sacred Heart offers a reliably casual environment where you and your family will feel welcomed and at home. Our friendly volunteer ministers will help you find your way around, starting from the moment you arrive on our campus. You’ll experience great contemporary music and a relevant message that relates the good news of the Gospel to your life.
How should I dress?
What you wear on your days off.
The only dress code is wear clothes. In other words, you’ll see all styles of dress at Sacred Heart which means you should feel comfortable regardless of your attire. Come dressed as you like- in a suit or in jeans and t-shirt.
What if I have kids?
Yeah, we’ve got that covered.
Sacred Heart is a great place for kids of all ages. Kids love the service and are free to stay for the duration, loud or not. We have several programs available for children to ensure an age-appropriate faith experience. Our 10am Sunday Mass is especially geared towards families with young children. Visit our page for more information or to enroll your child in the religious education program.~
The Archdiocese of Newark
Welcome. The Archdiocese of Newark is coordinating with the team at GoFundMe to provide one online location for the faithful to support the critical needs of their own parish (through this page) or other parish communities (through the Parishes in Need fund). The faithful may also contribute through their usual channels (e.g., envelopes, other online giving, the Annual Appeal).
Please consider a tax-deductible contribution to your parish on the parish’s GoFundMe page, or to the Parishes in Need fund, which will be used to conduct outreach to those in need and support those communities struggling to continue to pay their employees and church utility bills through this crisis. Contributions raised through the parish GoFundMe page will benefit that parish.
Cardinal Tobin has waived the usual archdiocesan assessment for contributions raised through this initiative. GoFundMe does not charge a platform fee (0%). There is a 0% platform fee and only an industry-standard payment processing fee of 1.9% + $0.30 per donation. If a charity receives a donation of $100, they will net $97.80. Donors will also have the option to tip GoFundMe Charity to support their continued business.
Thank you for your generosity to your parish and to those parish communities unable to meet their critical needs alone.
