  • Beautiful church with friendly people. Blue Ribbon school, our kids attended it and have gone on to do well in HS and college.  more »
  • This is my cathedral. I live in another town, but officially transferred my home church location to St. Francis of Assisi because I appreciate the beauty of a classically constructed cathedral and also love Metuchen. Gorgeous architecture and traditional mass services satisfy my spiritual obligation: I look forward to attending Sunday services weekly and feel lucky to have such a beautiful place to worship close by.
  • Great parish in Metuchen. We have been parishioners since the mid 90's. Great choir on Sunday masses especially on the big holiday events. Daily mass at 12:10 PM is a plus and if you go across the street in the back the blessed sacrament is open early morning to 9PM. Pro tip, parking can get scarce for Sunday mass there is a residential nook right across the front of the Cathedral which is a good option if all the front and side parking spots are taken. And on special events arriving 30 min. Before mass time is recommended if you want to get a seat and parking inside. Lastly Saturday evening mass has an acoustic choir, which is a nice change of pace from time to time.
