‘Memories and faith’

‘Memories and faith’
St. Joachim Parish in Bellmawr recently replaced its stained glass windows with ones from the old St. Maurice Church in Brooklawn, which was sold last summer. In 2011, St. Maurice; St. Anne, Westville; and Annunciation, Bellmawr, merged to form St. Joachim. The windows depicting, from left, St. Dominic; St. Anthony; St. Joseph the Provider; Our Mother of Sorrows; Sacred Heart of Jesus; St. Elizabeth Ann Seton; St. Patrick; and St. Maurice will “bring people together, as a visible witness” to former parishioners of St. Maurice, “who will see a part of their church, now bringing their memories and faith” to St. Joachim, said Father Piotr Szamocki, pastor.
