The Office of Communications and Public Relations serves to inform, educate and inspire the faithful by promoting the work and services of archdiocesan offices, schools, ministries, and programs, and sharing the story of the Archdiocese of Newark and the Catholic Church. The office serves as the liaison for all archdiocesan entities and the media and the director serves as the primary spokesperson for the Archbishop and the archdiocese.
JerseyCatholic.org is the official English and Spanish online news site of the Archdiocese of Newark, covering the Catholic communities in Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Union counties. As an evangeliziation and information source, JerseyCatholic.org supports the Archbishop and our local Church to share relevant and timely reflections and teachings, news, and updates with our Catholic communities and beyond. We want to hear what is happening in your parish community and school. Please share your archdiocesan ministry, parish or school community stories and events with us so we can publish your good works on our news site, through our social media channels, and with local news media. Notify us of archdiocesan events and activities as far in advance as possible.
