Do you have a picture of Father Patrick George Minnehan or of our Old Chapel?
St. Mary's Church is trying to locate a picture of Father Patrick George Minnehan (3/13/1866-1/3/1928). Father was the pastor here at St. Mary's and St. John the Evangelist for over 30 years. St. Mary's Chapel was rebuilt and dedicated in 1904. We would love any pictures of our old chapel that anyone might have...please check your relatives pictures of baptisms, marriage and other sacraments. We have a special copier that can make copies of your pictures and we will then return them to you.

Catholic Standard Subscriptions
Do you know that purchasing a Catholic Standard subscription helps save St. Mary’s money?
Basically, we are assessed a certain amount every year for the Catholic Standard based on our registered family count. This year our assessment is $4,458.50. Everyone who purchases a subscription and mentions that they are a parishioner of St. Mary’s of Piscataway lowers our assessment amount. Currently we have 74 parishioner families who have made that commitment. Thank you to all who are supporting us by paying for their own subscription! If you would like to help, please call the Catholic Standard at (202) 281-2407 or click on Catholic Standard/El Pregonero for further information and/or to subscribe.
