For the very active and diverse community of Holy Innocents Parish, Neptune, the church and school are the heart of the parish and hubs of activity as they live their mission as a community of faith and prayer.
It is through their prayers and generosity that the parish has begun to put their campaign funds to work. They have been repairing and upgrading the church and school by re-paving the parking lot, painting the interior of the church and chapel, replacing all the kneelers and interior doors of the church, renovating and updating bathrooms, and improving landscaping. Any additional funds received will go to address the parish debt.
The parish community’s efforts to support the Faith to Move Mountains campaign and desire to restore their church are reflective of the congratulatory words of Bishop George W. Ahr offered when he blessed the newly built church in August 1960. He congratulated the parish “for your zealous efforts in providing a suitable dwelling for our Eucharistic Lord in the recently established parish at Neptune.”
