  • Network of Care -- Catholic social service agencies work together to help those in need
    Individually, the Catholic social service agencies operating in the Diocese of Trenton make a true difference in the communities where they are located – bringing desperately needed services and resources to the poor and marginalized.
  • With the passage of new legislation that changes New Jersey’s Adoption Records Law, Catholic organizations are embarking upon an outreach campaign to let parents who placed a child for adoption in New Jersey know of their privacy rights. The New Jersey Catholic Conference offers the following details that all birth parents should know:
  • Throughout the four counties of the Diocese of Trenton, social service organizations and parish outreach initiatives work tirelessly to perform acts of service and help work to address the greatest social needs in the community.
  • A Passion for Service -- Helping others - a shared goal of parish social service ministy

    The wide range of social ministry programs offered individually by the 107 parishes of the Trenton Diocese runs the gamut from emergency financial assistance to food and housing support, to disaster management services and knitting and quilting ministries.

  • Each year around this time, we experience a host of “State of the X, Y, Z” speeches by government officials with the mandatory surgical analysis that follows from the media and other interested parties. Although these events sometimes bring out the skeptic in us, they are an annual “institution” that, for better or worse, provides a snapshot of what’s going on in our nation, our state, our cities or townships.

  • Vital effort underway to inform birth parents of adoption law change
    With a deadline looming, Catholic groups are working to alert birth parents of changes in the state’s adoption law that could affect their privacy rights.
  • We are called to give witness to our Catholic faith.

    This simple, yet profound, truth is at the heart of the 2014 Annual Catholic Appeal set to kick-off in all parishes the weekend of Feb. 15-16.

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.

To report the sexual abuse of minors call our hotline 1-888-296-2965 or email us at

Please note: 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.
