Historic Church in Barnegat Reopened After Facing COVID Closing and Other Setbacks
Celebrating its 146th anniversary year, historic Wright Memorial Presbyterian Church, 330 S. Main St. (Rt. 9) in Barnegat has reopened its doors for in-person and Zoom (live stream) worship after having been closed for a year. The church faced not only the onset of COVID but the retirement of its pastor, Rev. Robert E. Lewis, who faithfully led the church for 38 years. Other setbacks occurred that prevented the church from opening sooner but they have been overcome.
Rev. Kathleen E. Jamhoury will be leading weekly Sunday services at 10:30 AM and Rev. Anthony J. Maimone will also be leading weekly Tuesday night services at 6:00 PM. On Maundy Thursday of Easter week, Rev. Jamhoury and Rev. Maimone will lead a Maundy Thursday/Tenebrae service at 7:00 PM.
Wright Memorial Presbyterian Church’s doors are open to all who desire to celebrate God’s love and all are welcomed to join us in worship. Contact information – 609-698-3358 or www.wrightchurch.org.
