Rosary & Altar Society

This parish society first and foremost seeks to deepen and strengthen devotion to Mary, the mother of the Lord and mother of the Church. All women of the parish are invited to become members of this society. Meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month at 7:30 PM in the school cafeteria of St. Mary’s School. In addition to prayer, members care for the linens used at Mass. They also bake and sell Irish soda bread at the annual Mass celebrated in honor of St. Patrick. Call 201-384-0557 for more information.

Carnival Committee

Each year, one of our major community buildings and fundraising events as a parish is our annual carnival which takes place during the first full week in the month of June. The carnival offers an opportunity for young and old, new parishioners and “veterans” to participate in the parish, to have a great deal of fun and to get to know other members of the St. Mary’s family. It has been dubbed the “Social Event of the Year.” Call 201-384-0557 for more information.

Knights of Columbus

The St. John’s Council the K of C includes men from two parishes – St. Mary’s, Dumont, and St. John’s, Bergenfield. This national Catholic organization invites men from both parishes to join their spiritual, social and charitable work and activities. Call 201-384-0557 for more information.


The Philippine-American Lay Apostolate of Dumont (P.A.L.A.D.) invites Filipino parishioners of St. Mary’s to become involved in this parish soc-iety. Some activities would include feeding the homeless at a parish in Newark, “Linedancercise” held every Wednesday evening, and the weekly praying of the Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help as well as the yearly celebration of Simbang Gabi (Mass before Christmas). Call 201-384-0557 for more information.

Youth Ministry

Our parish seeks to reach out to our youth – grades 7-12 – in order to minister to them spiritually, socially, educationally and to involve them in the service life of the parish and the Church. Under the direction of our parish Youth Ministry Coordinators, adults work with our youth so that they may come to a greater realization of their place in our parish and the Church as a whole. Call 201-384-0557 for more information.
