St. Joseph’s Church Honors Members of The Armed Forces

and Battleship New Jersey Veterans


St. Joseph’s History Society of St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic (Polish) Church, Camden, NJ will honor those who served on the Battleship New Jersey and active military personnel during the annual Armed Forces Day Mass at 10:30 AM on Sunday, May 19th, 2013.


For the past five years, the History Society has recognized the sacrifice of US service men and women in honor of Armed Forces Day. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the commissioning of the New Jersey on May 23rd, 1943 and special recognition will go to those who valiantly served on the battleship during over four decades of service.


As in the past, the names of active military personnel will be read aloud and remembered in prayer during Mass. Family and friends who wish to participate are invited to send the name and branch of service of loved ones in uniform to


The Battleship New Jersey, America’s most decorated Battleship, was decommissioned for the final time in 1991 and began service as a museum and memorial on the Delaware River in October 2001, becoming one of Camden’s most recognizable landmarks.


Just as the Battleship New Jersey remains today a proud symbol of the shared sacrifice of those who fought to defend our cherished freedoms, St. Joseph’s Church, founded in 1892, survives today as a living symbol of the sacrifice and toil of thousands of brave Polish immigrants who journeyed across a treacherous ocean and came to America seeking freedom and opportunity in the once mighty industrial City of Camden.


A reception will follow after Mass where information pertaining to the New Jersey will be on display, along with photographs and memorabilia of parishioners who have proudly served in the US Armed Forces over the past 100 years. 


435 Parish members served in WW2. A banner was raised and dedicated in honor of those who served on August 30, 1942. 


For more information, contact Grant Wilinski at 609-965-2614 or St. Joseph’s Church is located at 10th and Mechanic Sts.  Camden, NJ. 08104. 



Our church would like to thank all volunteers and parishioners who devote their time and talents to our Church by inviting them to a special Appreciation Dinner scheduled for May 25 after 4 o’clock Mass at 5:00 in a Lower Parish Hall. If you are interested in attending please sign your name and number of attending guests on a sheet provided by the Church door.


Please support Our Church by remembering us in your Will….
