We, the Parish Family of Saint Valentine, are a Roman Catholic Community within the local Church of the Archdiocese of Newark. The celebration of the Mass and the Sacraments is central to our identity as a parochial community which worships God for our families, neighbors and friends. Sharing the Eucharist commissions us to be a sign of the Kingdom of God present among us, yet ever becoming more a reality, as we follow Christ, proclaiming his Gospel and witnessing to his teaching. Through liturgical worship and the ministries of the Church, we are enabled to love each other in our service of God. THEREFORE, we the Parish Community of Saint Valentine, are dedicated to serving others within and outside ourselves, as we strive to deepen our own response to the Lord and to announce the Good News of salvation in Christ.
