Welcome to St. Mary's Parish Website!

Religious Education Class, Confirmation Class and BINGO have been cancelled for tonight, December 10, 2013! 

For more than 125 years Catholics of Nutley, Belleville and the surrounding area have come to Saint Mary's to celebrate the Eucharist, to grow in the spiritual life, to educate their children in the Faith, to befriend one another, and to work together to help people and benefit our community.

We hope you will be a part of this tradition we value so much, and that you will consider taking part in our parish life.
