During this time of transition, our Archbishop, Cardinal Joseph Tobin, has appointed Reverend John J. Paladino as administrator to St. Teresa’s Parish.

Father John is not new to St. Teresa’s. This was his first assignment as a Priest, after his ordination in 1991! He was stationed here until 1996. Now, Father John is the Pastor at Saint Bartholomew Catholic Church in Scotch Plains and the Executive Director of Clergy Personnel for the Archdiocese of Newark. As well as serving as a pastor, his work has included hospital chaplaincy, education, and campus ministry.

Father John will be assisting us in our Parish needs and celebrating masses.  Please say hello and welcome him back!
