Friends of the Commission – How To Join

Do you have an interest in the history of Catholicism in New Jersey? Are you active in the life of your local parish and want to learn more about its past? Are you involved in genealogical research and want to find out more about your family’s religious roots? Then become a friend of the New Jersey Catholic Historical Commission today.  Established in 1976, the New Jersey Catholic Historical Commission (NJCHC) works to collect, preserve, and publish material related to the history of the Catholic Church and the Catholic community in the state. While formal membership in the NJCHC is limited to those scholars and professionals commissioned by their local dioceses, we invite all those who share an interest in our mission to join our growing circle of friends.

All you have to do is sign up and join our mailing list. We will send you copies of the newsletter, share information about recent scholarship, and keep you informed of lectures, workshops, and other public programs. There is no cost for membership. To be added to our list, please send your name and e-mail address to executive director Alan DeLozier,
