On a picture perfect July 8 afternoon, they gathered at the Mercer County CYO camp grounds in Yardville where they celebrated Mass and prayed as the new community of Sacred Heart Parish, and then they enjoyed a festive picnic with all kinds of perks. They dined on hamburgers, hot dogs, salads and desserts, went swimming in the Olympic-sized pool, some kids enjoyed playing on the swing set and running around the spacious tree-lined grounds while adults leisurely sat at the tables and shared pleasant conversation.

As of July 1, the two Trenton faith communities ceased to be individual parishes and were merged into a new entity under the name of Sacred Heart Parish. The merger marks one of the most recent changes resulting from the Diocese of Trenton’s pastoral planning initiative, Faith in Our Future, which was commissioned by Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., in 2015 in order to strengthen and enliven parishes of the Diocese.
