St. Anthony of Padua Mission is the Home of Traditional Catholicism in North Jersey. We are the faithful of the parish that was founded by the late Father Paul Wickens. St. Anthony of Padua, Hammer of Heretics, we beseech thee to intercede for us. Help us to restore the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Roman Catholic Church and Traditional Latin Mass.

Governor Christie has issued a state of emergency which includes travel bans on non-emergency vehicles. Therefore, unless the ban is lifted, no one will be able to get to church as summonses may be issued, which include significant fines. There are many accidents and stuck cars.

Fr. Sulzen is at the church and is safe. Father anticipated being able to offer both Masses tomorrow when the forecast was less foreboding, but the blizzard has escalated and weather conditions may prevent this.

At this time, the 7:30 am Mass is canceled, with the 10:00 am Mass to be offered publicly ONLY IF the state of emergency and travel bans are lifted. Even if the state of emergency is removed, Father insists that all families use extreme prudence, and in the event they may endanger themselves in any way, due to distance, weather, and road conditions, he asks them to remain at home and read through the Mass & offer an extra Rosary. Father reminds the faithful that the obligation remains to sanctify the Sunday, and this is usually done by attending Mass, but in certain conditions (like weather, etc.), we are excused from attendance at Mass.

June 18, 2005 — Listen to Father Paul Wickens, in his own voice, express his desire for his parish to be turned over to the Society of St. Pius X.

St. Anthony of Padua Church is a Roman Catholic parish in northern New Jersey, celebrating exclusively the immemorial Traditional Latin Mass and the eternal, unchanging Sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church. We are devoted to the restoration of Church doctrine and tradition, and elimination of the heresies of modernism.

Our parish was founded by the late Father Paul Wickens, and now is one of the newest chapels of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), a worldwide Roman Catholic priestly organization that offers only the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments, according to the unchanging Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. Click here to visit the SSPX home page.

We invite you to celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with us, and worship in the same manner as your grandparents: at the Traditional Roman Catholic Latin Mass — the Mass that the saints glorified and for which the martyrs gave their lives.
