New Parishioners


We encourage all new families who move into the St. Catharine – St. Margaret Parish to contact the rectory at 732-449-5765 for a registration packet or download the registration form HERE

The Diocese of Trenton suggests that families register at the parish in which they reside.   If you do not reside within the boundaries but wish to be a member of the parish please see the instructions below.

For questions regarding registration please contact 732-449-5765 x109 or


People seeking to register here that are not within geographical boundaries may apply but need to provide the following:

1. Census form filled out
2. Written permission from the pastor of their local parish church

If you are accepted you must be active members of the community (volunteer in some way) and agree to use envelopes regularly.   The frequency of envelope use and not the amount of contribution is noted.

Periodically, we review those parishioners residing outside the boundaries to see if they continue to meet the criteria noted above.

New parishioners who have joined from outside the boundaries must be registered for one year before they receive parishioner’s tuition rate in our school.

All new parishioners must be registered for one year before requesting to be married in the parish.
