Pastoral Council

St. Veronica Parish Mission Statement
We, the Parish Family of Saint Veronica, are called through Baptism to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in faith, hope and love. We strive toward deeper conversion by active participation in the Eucharist and by being good stewards to one another. Through vibrant evangelization, a welcoming community and Spirit-led service we continually challenge ourselves to bear the face of Jesus like our patroness did as we journey together in unity,
to the glory and honor of God.

The Parish Pastoral Council meets regularly and as needed.

Members:  Pat Bigg, Mark Bonjavanni, Denise Daye, Chris Fenimore, Gail Kohan, Ed Monti, Bob Morris, Marietta Racancoj, Phil Thompson.

Ex officio members: 
Fr. PJ Alindogan and Fr. John Chang

What is the Parish Pastoral Council?  The Parish Pastoral Council serves as a way for the Church to gather several perspectives from members of the community about topics regarding the Parish.  In this case, the Parish Pastoral Council is administering a community event with the purpose of defining an all-encompassing vision for our future as well as creating a unifying mission statement for our Church.

More information can be found by contacting the parish office: Phone:  732-363-4200 or by emailing

You can also reach out to our fellow parishioners and current members of the Parish Pastoral Council pictured above.

Everyone is needed!  All are welcome!
Thoughts were garnered from many members of the Parish as possible via a Parish Assembly which was held on Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021.

The parishioners who came to the Parish Assembly discussed the future of our Parish, what parishioners would like to see more of, and how we can grow and be forward looking with such important questions as: If Jesus were here today, what words would he give us to direct our future? and What do I as a member expect of my parish?

UPDATE on Parish Assembly

The Parish Assembly was held on February 15, 2023 at 7:00PM.
