Our Story

In 1951, St. Mary’s of the Pines was established as a second Mission Church here in Forked River. At the time there were only 35 Catholic families in the area of Lacey Township.

What We Believe

We believe that the Catholic Church is the Universal Church of Jesus Christ and we pledge our obedience and loyalty to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church guided by the Holy Spirit of God.

How We Serve

As members of the “One Body in Christ” (Rom 12:4-8), we use our individual time, talents and treasures to collectively build up the Church and the Community. We act as instruments of hope for God’s world through the many ministries here at St Pius the Tenth by serving our neighbor in the name of Jesus Christ. We serve also by the Faith Formation programs we provide our adults and the Religious Education programs we provide to our youth.

Why We Do it.

The Church has but one mission, “to build the Kingdom of God”. Our goal, under the direction of our Pastor, is to respond to a call to participate and contribute to the Church’s mission. We are disciples of Jesus Christ who told us, “Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.” ( Jn 13:34)
