The Office of Communications serves to inform, educate and inspire the faithful by communicating the mission, work and services of the Cardinal, bishops, and archdiocesan parishes and ministries, as well as the stories of the Archdiocese of Newark and the Catholic Church. The office serves as the liaison between all archdiocesan entities and the media, and the director serves as the primary spokesperson for the Cardinal Archbishop, the archdiocese, and archdiocesan parishes and Catholic schools.
JerseyCatholic.org is the official English and Spanish online news site of the Archdiocese of Newark, covering the archdiocesan Catholic communities in Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Union counties. As an evangeliziation and information source, JerseyCatholic.org supports the Cardinal Archbishop and our local Church to share relevant and timely news, updates, reflections and teachings with our Catholic communities and beyond.
Archdiocesan ministries and parish and school communities are encouraged to share stories, announcements and updates for publication consideration. Email news ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notify the Office of Communications about events as far in advance as possible.
