We Welcome All People

of Good Will

Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church

Located in Historic Downtown Jersey City

The First Italian Parish in The State of NJ


We, the People of Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church, rooted in traditions are working to do the will of God in today's world. We welcome each person to celebrate the Eucharist and to help create harmony for the good of all in His kingdom.


Founded in 1885, Holy Rosary Church is the oldest Italian Roman Catholic Church in the state of New Jersey. It’s congregation now reflects the growing “tapestry of nations” that makes up the demographics of Historic Downtown Jersey City.

The Latin word sacramentum means “a sign of the sacred.” The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God’s saving presence.
