Please be reminded that for all Masses, our churches have limited capacities because of COVID-19 restrictions. The dispensation from our obligation to come to Mass given by Bishop O’Connell for the Diocese of Trenton is still in effect. You don’t have to come to church. However, some Masses will be live-Streamed. Check the links on the right.
Please continue to use your envelopes. Your continued support is greatly appreciated. Envelopes may be mailed to the rectory office or dropped off in designated areas in church during the weekend masses. Online donations are also accepted. Scroll to the bottom of the page to enroll in Parish Giving if you have not done so already.
Through the intercession of Mary our Mother and Saint Jerome, we the parish families of Our Lady of Hope are called to live and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We strive to grow as a vibrant and welcoming community through worship, evangelization, and ministry to those in need by sharing the resources, time, and talents given to us by God.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: (Bishop O’Connell’s letter to parishioners May 2021)
I write to you today to highlight our 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal and ask you to consider supporting this worthy cause. I reach out with a sense of urgency given the reality of how the pandemic has impacted this year’s Appeal and the people we serve.
Throughout the pandemic, the Diocese and our parishes have remained steadfast in our outreach, serving our communities. All this work requires resources. None of it can happen without your support. As St. Teresa reminds us: “Together we can do great things.”
I ask that you prayerfully consider a gift to the 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal so we, together, may continue the work of strengthening parish and family life, evangelizing our community and our world, and reaching out to those in need with love and compassion.
Thank you in advance for whatever support you can provide for the significant work that lies ahead. I will continue to keep you and your family in my daily prayers.
Yours in Christ,
Most Reverend David M. O’Connell, C.M.
Bishop of Trenton
