What is the RCCTR? Founded in 2015 as part of the “Faith in Our Future”  initiative of the Diocese of Trenton (Cohort 24), the Roman Catholic Churches of Toms River  (RCCTR) is comprised of leaders and clergy from the four Roman Catholic parishes in Toms River: St. Joseph’s, St. Justin the Martyr, St. Luke’s and St. Maximilian Kolbe. These four parishes serve more than 20,000 registered Catholic families in Toms River, and collaborate to find ways to strengthen our parishes, explore new models of leadership, evangelize, improve Hispanic ministry and expand opportunities for greater efficiency and better stewardship. This collaboration is key to bring greater depth and breadth of services to the community. The mission statement of the RCCTR is, “Leading people to the heart of Jesus where they can experience the beauty of the truth as contained in the Catholic faith.”
