New Directors of Catholic Identity at Camden Catholic, Gloucester Catholic

Bishop Dennis Sullivan has assigned two parish priests to serve as Directors of Catholic Identity beginning July 1.


Father Joseph P. Capella, who has been pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Lindenwold, since 2009, will serve at Camden Catholic High School, Cherry Hill. He will be In-Residence at Mary, Queen of All Saints Parish in Pennsauken.

Father Capella was pastor of Saint Luke Parish in Stratford before serving in Lindenwold.

He was ordained a Pallottine priest on June 2, 1990, at Saint Joseph Parish in Hammonton. He was incardinated into the Diocese of Camden in 2006.


Father Kevin J. Mohan will be assigned to Gloucester Catholic High School in Gloucester City. He will be In-Residence at Saint Mary Parish in Gloucester City.

Father Mohan is one of the Camden Diocese’s newest priests, having been ordained May 18, 2013, in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Camden. Since ordination he has been serving as parochial vicar at Our Lady of Peace Parish in Williamstown.

He is a graduate of Camden Catholic High School, Cherry Hill; Saint Charles Seminary, Overbrook, Pa.; Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio; and Saint Mary’s Seminary and University, Baltimore. His studies also included a summer in Mexico and a pastoral year at Saint Joseph’s Pro-Cathedral, Camden.

Bishop Sullivan created the position of Director of Catholic Identity, envisioning priests serving as “pastors” in diocesan high schools, teaching religion, leading school liturgical celebrations, encouraging vocations, and serving as a spiritual resource for students, faculty and staff.
