Hermann Electric Banner Ad

Bishop Joseph Galante announces the establishment of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Parish, formed through the consolidation of Queen of Angels (Our Lady of Victories, Landisville and St. Michael, Minotola), Buena; St. Mary, Malaga; and St. Rose of Lima, Newfield, effective Aug. 31.

The announcement establishing the new parish was made in a formal decree, which is published in the July 29 edition of the Catholic Star Herald (pages 14-15).

Father Allain B. Caparas has been named pastor of the new parish for a six-year term.

The Church of St. Rose of Lima will be the seat of the new parish, serving the pastoral needs of the 2,500 families in Gloucester, Cumberland and Atlantic counties. Both St. Rose and St. Michael Church will be utilized for Sunday and daily Mass.

The parish boundaries will be those of the merging church communities.

It is the 34th decree issued by Bishop Galante in a diocesan-wide reconfiguration of parishes announced two years ago to strengthen parishes and improve pastoral care to the people of the Diocese of Camden. The reconfigurations are a result of more than a year of study by parish and deanery planners, who considered population and demographic trends, the number of diocesan priests available for ministry, Mass attendance and trends in religious practice.
