Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

This ministry provides for the instruction and formation of adults preparing for Baptism, Confirmation and First Eucharist, and of adult Christians preparing for full communion with the Roman Catholic Church.

This ministry consists of an RCIA team, led by Fr. Jose, along with Deacon Bob Thomson and parishioner Cora Callanta.

If anyone is interested in receiving these sacraments, please contact the parish staff at 201.945.6329.

Deacon Robert Thomson looks on as Holy Rosary’s 2020 Catechumen, Robin Davis, confirms the Rite of Election at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark. (March 1, 2020)


We are happy to announce that Robin Benke Davis will receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Penance and Holy Eucharist at the  5:30 PM mass on August 8, 2020. Though Robin prepared for many months, the cancellation of the Easter Vigil due to Covid-19 — followed by the lockdown of our Churches — delayed this most auspicious occasion. We are delighted that we can finally welcome Robin as an official member of our Holy Rosary parish family!!

Congratulations, Robin! You have shown saintly patience!
