Fridays in Lent at 12 noon & 4pm
12 Noon - Stations & Soup
Join us for the Stations of the Cross in Church. We will continue our tradition of serving a soup & salad luncheon following the noon Stations every Friday, except Good Friday. The delicious soup is compliments of Flanagan’s in South Plainfield.
4pm - Stations of the Cross for Families
Please mark your calendars for 4pm each Friday during Lent and participate with your family in the Stations. For parents who experienced the Stations of the Cross during their childhood, we know how it can help us grow in our relationship with Jesus, as we walk with Him to Calvary.

In June of 1964, Bishop Thomas A. Boland, Archbishop of Newark, assigned Fr. George Byrne to establish a new parish in Scotch Plains. The first Mass of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish was celebrated on June 21, 1964 at the Union Catholic High School auditorium.
Groundbreaking for the present church took place on July 23, 1967, with the first Mass in the new church offered on January 18, 1969.
Since then there have been ongoing improvements, including additions to the rectory and construction of the Nazareth Center.
More important, however, than the notable increase in the parish's physicial plant, has been the increase in parishioners.
Since 1964 the parish has grown to more than 1800 families who are bound together by common beliefs and who journey together toward lasting peace with the Lord of all.
