Our Promise to Protect
Our Promise to Protect
The Diocese of Trenton is committed to the initiatives outlined in the U.S. Bishop’s Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People in regard to the reporting and investigation of sexual abuse allegations involving minors. If you have been sexually abused as a minor by a member of the clergy or anyone representing the Catholic Church, or if you know of someone who was, you can report that abuse through the diocesan Abuse Hotline: 1-888-296-2965 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Diocese of Trenton reports any allegations of sexual abuse to the appropriate law enforcement agencies. Anyone with an allegation is also encouraged to provide that information to local law enforcement authorities.

Update Regarding Faith in the Future
Our cohort #19 of Parishes (which is made up of St. Mark, St. Catharine/St. Margaret in Spring Lake, St. Rose in Belmar. St. Elizabeth in Avon and Ascension in Bradley Beach), were given six long-term goals to accomplish by the Diocese. These goals were determined from work completed in the first phase of Faith in Our Future during 2016. Our cohort has been asked to select three or four goals (of the six from the Diocese) to focus on for the coming twelve months. As all five parishes begin to work together and collaborate, the goals we are focusing on for the coming months are:
Our first goal: We will begin to create a five-year strategic plan–a plan involving participation by all parishes in the cohort–in support of St. Rose and St. Catharine’s Grammar Schools, as well as St. Rose High School. We need to convey the message to all, that Catholic Education represents an important pipeline to the future of our faith-based community.
Our second goal: We will begin to share (and/or possibly combine) youth ministry, the Faith Formation & Evangelization ministries, as well as Bereavement ministries within the cohort of parishes.
Our third goal: We will combine and increase the use of technology to improve our communication with parishioners throughout the cohort of parishes, as well as improve our communication with fallen-away members of the Faith, and the public.
We thank you for your prayers and for your support.
