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

Our goal, under the direction of our pastor, is to provide Religious Education for all people with special emphasis on our youth, and our Religious Education Program for Public School children.

Why We Do it.

As good and responsible stewards we see the great need to build New Church and Parish Center. By building these facilities, and sharing our Time, Talents and Treasure, we build the Kingdom of God.
