We are here to help

If you need help, we can help you in the following ways:

Do you need food?

If you are in need of food, please visit our Food Pantry during the following times:

Monday and Tuesday  - 5:30 to 7pm

Wednesday - 10:30am to 12pm

Thursday - 6:30 to 8pm

Friday - 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. 

St. Crispin's Food Pantry is a choice-system food pantry. A choice-system food pantry is just like going to the grocery store. Our neighbors are able to pick out the food and items from our pantry based on the unique needs and circumstances of their families.

Do you need Financial Assistance?

Do you require Financial Assistance for rent, utilities, etc.? Maybe we can help you.  Assistance requests are by appointment ONLY. Please call 732-747-0813 ext. 105

Do you need Immigration & Refugee Assistance

St. Anthony of Padua Parish works in collaboration with Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Trenton to help those who are seeking immigration or refugee assistance. Catholic Charities has well-trained and certified personnel to assist with many immigration issues and does so in an ethical and competent manner. If you or anyone in your family needs assistance, please contact our parish office (732-747-0813 ext. 101) and we will be happy to schedule an appointment with an immigration expert to assist you.

Do you need clothing?

Salve Regina Renewed Life Clothing Shop

Saturdays, 9:30am to 12pm

(During the summer, Salve Regina Shop is located on the corner of the Parish Center. During the rest of the year, Salve Regina Shop is located in the basement of Saint Crispin House.) 

The Salve Regina Clothing Shop offers, at suggested donations, fashionable clothing, clothing accessories, and footwear.  Through the generosity of donations of new and gently used clothing, we offer our neighbors a pleasant and dignified shopping experience.

100% of the donation funds collected through the Salve Regina Shop are used to help finance all the other Saint Crispin Society ministries, especially the Food Pantry and Financial Assistance Program.

If you are in need of emergency donations of clothing (coats, shoes, etc.), please contact us at 732-747-0813 ext. 101.

Do you need programs for your children?

Faith Explorers

Faith Explorers is our summer activity program for children from 1st grade to 8th grade. This program helps children connect a love for faith, creation, and science through great experiences of prayer, games, activities, and trips. It runs for four weeks each summer from 9am to 12pm (Monday to Friday), except on field trip days. Field trip days typically run longer. This program is completely free for the children. If your children are in high school, they can also take part by volunteering for the program. For more information, please contact Br. Daniel at dbower@redbankoratory.net. Faith Explorers for the summer of 2023 is from July 10 to August 4.

Scholastic Explorers is our after-school program for children from 1st to 12th grade. This program is completely free and runs during the school year and is open every day that the children have school from 3:15 to 5:15pm. Each day includes a time of games for the kids to unwind from the school day, a time of prayer and learning about the Faith, and a time of working on homework or improving their academic skills with the assistance of the Brothers of the Oratory and volunteers and tutors. If you are interested in signing up your children, please contact Br. Daniel at dbower@redbankoratory.net
