Welcome to the Parish of St. Katharine Drexel

The Catholic Churches of St. Paul and All Saints in Burlington NJ


Please scroll all the way down the page, new updates regarding the Coronavirus are posted daily.

St. Katharine Drexel Parish - All Saints Church is open for private prayer only beginning Wednesday, May 13, The Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, through Friday, May 15, 10 am - 3 pm

Docents: Parishioners have volunteered to take care of the church during prayer hours. They are responsible for cleaning the pews after use, and for making sure you follow these precautions.

  • Please follow the instructions of the docents.
  • Masks must be worn at all times.
  • Observe social distancing (space 6 feet).
  • Only 10 persons total in the church building at a time.
  • Please be prepared to leave when someone arrives.
  • Remain in the usable church area (avoid the lobby, votive candles, other doors, etc.).
  • No restrooms will be available.
  • Please no gathering or conversations outside the church.
  • Use only the pews that are available as marked.
  • Use only pews where the kneelers are up (denoting a pew that has not been used).
  • When you leave a pew, please put the kneeler down so the docent knows to clean it.
  • If you’re sick or at risk, please pray to our Lord from home.
  • Anyone coughing, sneezing, etc., will be asked to leave.

Our ability to continue opening the church depends on everyone responsibly following these guidelines.

We will reevaluate at the end of the week and determine plans for next week.


Through your generous efforts, our parish has held the line of weekly giving at about 60% of “normal.” That is permitting us to both retain financial reserves as well as avoid debt, which is especially significant since we don’t know how long our isolation and special procedures will be required. I make a special plea, both for the financial stability of the parish and also for the health and safety of both you and our parish staff, that you consider online giving as a way to avoid checks and envelopes (and any little unintended “friends” that may be along for the ride). Check that out (pun intended!) at https://www.stkatharinedrexel-nj.org/63.

Fr. Mike and Fr. Jerome are celebrating Mass for your prayerful viewing Mon-Sat 8am, and twice on Sunday at 10:30 am and 12 Noon. See https://www.facebook.com/stkatsburlington/

On the advice of public health officials, our bishop has directed the closing of all churches and chapels in the Diocese of Trenton as of Wednesday, April 1st at Noon. We have suspended all scheduled Eucharistic Adoration and Confessions.

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of continuing your weekly giving in some form. Some of you are more greatly impacted by the crisis, limiting your ability to be generous. Our prayers are with you! But many of you could continue your generosity exactly as before, with only the missing basket in the pew preventing you from doing so. Don’t wait for the basket! God wants to have the doors open, the lights on, and the buildings warmed up (or cooled off!) when your return, but we must cooperate with His plan. Please drop your weekly envelope in the office mail slot, or send it to 223 E Union St. Burlington, NJ 08016, or – if you really want to step out on a limb – start online giving at https://www.stkatharinedrexel-nj.org/63. To all who have made the effort to keep up your gifts, thank you and God Bless you.

God Bless, and stay healthy!
Fr. Jerome
