Our Parish
70 Years of Persistance…

Since its conception, the Roman Catholic Parish of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary has been a place of growth and diversity. It was not long after the parish’s founding, that the Benedictine Monks of Saith Mary’s Abbey, Morristown, took charge of the parish. Under their guidance, the present church was completed in 1952. The same growth and diversity that has come to characterize Saint Elizabeth’s Parish through the years, now requires that major aspects of our parish’s physical plant be updated so as to meet the needs of our growing parish family.

How Would Our Parish Benefit from Your Participation in a Successful Capital Campaign?

For over a century, the parish families of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary families of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, have devoted their time, talent and treasure towards the building of Linden, New Jersey’s first Roman Catholic parish. Their legacy is one of closely woven hard work and faith. The present parish physical plant gives testimony to this legacy. If these structures are to continue to bear witness to the faith of our predecessors and provide for our present and future needs, rehabilitative actions must be taken to insure their soundness and usefulness.

  • Refurbish the Pipe Organ
  • Repair wall plaster near one of the stained glass windows
  • Replace Church leaders and gutters
  • Repair church front steps
  • Replace missing church roof tiles
  • Improve Parish landscaping
  • Repair Rectory windows

If our plan to rehabilitate our parish are to become a reality, we will need to raise a minimum of $350,000. Your participation is greatly needed.

In the face of incredible obstacles throughout the past year, the Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of Newark have served as a beacon of light throughout our communities and beyond for nearly 175 years.

From teachers who’ve risen to the challenge of remote learning, to principals who have continually thought outside of the box to bring some degree of normalcy to education in the midst of a global pandemic, to students and families who’ve answered the call to adapt to these unusually trying times, and to the generous donors like you who have continued to support the cause of Catholic education; it is plain to see that our community is a strong, formidable and a faithfilled one.

I am pleased to let you know that during the fall semester of this academic year, our elementary schools had in person instruction for an average of 71 days (or 83% of the time.) How wonderful!

With your help, we can continue our commitment to provide students with a superior education, life-long friendships, and strong values.

This Catholic Schools Week, please consider a gift today to sustain Catholic education so that we may continue to provide the quality education that our students deserve.

With gratitude for your stewardship,

Msgr. Thomas J. McDade, Vicar for Education

“Without ministry to youth and young adults, there would be no future in the Church. They need to see their experience as something vibrant and joyful, and that’s why it’s fundamental that we have programs, like CCD, in the parish.” – Fr. Francisco Rodriguez, Pastor at St. Francis de Sales in Lodi

Did you know: This year, the 2021 Annual Appeal is raising over $2,000,000 to ensure we are passing on the faith to our next generation of Catholics?  Your support of the 2021 Annual Appeal allows our young adult ministries to thrive.   

 With gratitude for your stewardship,

The Office of Development and Stewardship
