Cathedral of Immaculate Conception, Camden

Cathedral of Immaculate Conception, Camden

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is a Catholic Cathedral located in Camden, New Jersey. It is the seat of the Diocese of Camden, and it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003 as the Church of the Immaculate Conception.

As the number of Catholics continued to increase in South Jersey, Pope Pius XI established the Diocese of Camden on December 9 1937. The Church of the Immaculate Conception became the cathedral church for the new diocese at this time. The diocese’s first bishop, Bartholomew J. Eustace, was installed on May 4, 1938. The number of Catholics continued to increase in the diocese and Immaculate Conception’s rather modest size necessitated St. Joseph’s Church being named a pro-cathedral in the 1950s. Demographic changes in the late 20th and early 21st century necessitated changes to the parishes in Camden. On April 4, 2008 Bishop Joseph Galante announced that the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception would merge with Holy Name and Our Lady of Mount Carmel & Fatima parishes in Camden. The Cathedral was designated as the primary worship site with a secondary worship site at Our Lady of Mount Carmel & Fatima.
