6 churches serves 338 sqares miles ....soon there will be only one main and one secondary. leaving a lot of poor and elderly with travel hardships.

people in salem county need to open their eyes and see the light and realize that their pastors are not telling them the truth. If they would only watch the news and read the courier post and the philadelphia inquirer and of course the internet hundreds of catholic churches are being put up for sale due to sexual abuse cases. Do you really believe that the parish center that was recently built will remain open. hey,,,,I'll sell you the Commmodore barry bridge...St. Ann's in elmer and St joesin woodstown have valuable property and to think that most o f these people in woodstown are white collar and college educated??!!! It takes farmers to see what is really going on. selfish, someone is going to profit from the sale of our properties..

Why aren't the priests in the Camden Diocese backing up other priests and parishioners who are trying to save their parishes? Many priests in the Camden diocese are closing down parishes with very little compassion for their parishioners. How can a priest protest vietnam war and not protest st. Bart's in Camden and other parishes in the dioceses that are closing. These priests won't hold Mass or sign petitions to support other parishes. How can a priest hold Mass for the Irish hunger strikers who starved themselves for freedom in ireland and yet won't support or have Mass for those who are fighting to save the Catholic Mass and protect priests????

Father Marucci is backing his parish, St. Vincent Pallotti. Father Jerome Romanowski is the first and only holy priest to not only represent and support St. Mary's in Malage but he is spiritually supporting all the Parishes in the Camden Diocese; including 338 square miles of Salem County who have been hit the hardest with the most closures.
