Our Lady
Mt. Carmel
50th Anniversary

In 1903 Camden saw the founding of the Italian language parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, originally know as the "Italian Catholic Church" that had grown out of the pastoral work done among the Italian immigrants by Father Michael Di Ielsi.  The church building itself was built at South 4th and Division Streets around the year 1907, and the bell tower added in 1945. 

The Church was not only a spiritual center but a social one as well. The Young Men's Catholic Club of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church maintained its clubhouse nearby at 825-827 Clare Street, the corner of Clare Street and  Division Street

The church celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 1953 and published a book to commemorate the occasion. Thanks to Gene Robison, whose grandparents and parents were members of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel at the time of publication, this book is being reproduced on this website.

Message From
Bishop E

Dear Father Argullo,

It is with sentiments of deep gratitude to Almighty God that I realize this present year, 1953, marks the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Our Lady of Mount Carmel parish. I therefore turn first to God in order to thank Him for His many and great favors. He. has protected the parish, guided its Priests and people, and brought us to this happy day when we can look back on fifty years of graces received and salvation wrought. 

During the fifty years of its existence the parish has had a long and honorable history. Its baptismal records are crowded with the names of thousands who received in the parish church the waters of baptism, and thus became children of God and heirs of heaven. In uncounted thousands of instances the mercy of God has been dispensed in the confessionals of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. Before the altar young people have stood to exchange their marriage vows, and the same altar marked the place where the last holy rites of our religion were performed in the case of those who had finished the time of their exile from heaven. Often hearts have throbbed with joy on receiving at the altar-rail the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Our Lord, and I have had on many occasions the privi­lege of confirming the children.

IN the year 1903, the first Mass of the new Italian parish was celebrated by the Reverend Michael Di Ielsi in the humble and unimposing residence of a German family situated at Third and Line Streets. The Italian populace was overjoyed at having their first Mass.

The need for a more spacious site for the celebration of Holy Mass was soon felt and the congregation immediately went about the task of locating another building. A building at the N. E. corner of South Fourth and Cherry Streets proved to be the ideal answer to this pressing need. Thus, with a building suitable for their church and a congregation ever increasing in size, actual incorporation proceedings were established and completed on August 25, 1903. The parish had now become a legal entity.

The priests and trustees of the new parish, however, all the while realized that the present site was inadequate for this growing Italian community and in the year 1904, they successfully completed the purchase of the properties at 912-914 and 918 South Fourth Street, for the sum of $4,500.00. On these properties they hoped eventually to erect a more spacious and church-like edifice. However, the plans of Almighty God for this budding parish were different.

In the year 1868, the parish of SS. Peter and Paul, which formerly ministered to the spiritual needs of the people of this area, acquired a Baptist church building at the site which was to later bear the present church. Addition of a rectory and hall were completed in 1883. This, in later years proved inadequate for the German congregation which moved to its present site on Spruce Street above Broadway. The Reverend pastor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, realizing that the acquisition of this property would be more advantageous to the needs of his growing parish, began negotiating for the purchase of this property. The transfer of the plant, which consisted of a wooden Church, the present rectory and Church hall, was completed in 1907 for the sum of $9,700.00.

Sensing the need for a newer and more spacious church building, the wooden structure was torn down and the present one was begun.

With Thomas Stephen as architect and Daniel H. Sharp, the contractor, the work progressed at a rapid rate and was soon completed. Thus the overjoyed parishioners were able to assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered in this beautiful new church. Later on, additional ad· joining properties were purchased so as to consolidate the parish's holdings. War prevented further expansion and limited parish activities.

With the cessation of hostilities, peace and the Reverend Brendan Shea came to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Here was an incident to demonstrate the Catholicity of the Church - an Irish pastor charged with the spiritual welfare of an Italian congregation. The passing years would gain for him the filial love of his flock. Envisioning the need for quarters for the good Sisters who daily journeyed to School from the Convent adjoining SS. Peter and Paul Church, Father Shea purchased properties at 840 and 842 South Fourth Street, as well as 411 and 413 Spruce Street and 837 Dauphin Street (formerly known as Kaighn Street) for $30,000.00 in 1923, and 417 Spruce Street for $5,000.00 in 1925.

A basement Chapel dedicated to St. Theresa of the Child Jesus, the Little Flower, was dedicated in 1926. The pious people of the parish put forth the sum of $10,000.00 so that this tribute to one of the beloved saints of God might become a reality.

Meanwhile, the school flourished, and a Commercial department was instituted so that the children of the parish might receive a better and fuller education. This new move proved to be and continues to be a successful venture into the realm of higher education. The educational expansion in the parish did not halt at this point; in 1928 a new addition of a second and third floor was made to the old school building. This growth placed the parish in debt, to the amount of $24,000.00, adding to the existing debt.

On Wednesday, June 13, 1928, the beloved pastor, Father Brendan Shea was called by his heavenly Master to his richly deserved reward. Thousands of sad eyed parishioners, many of whom were personal friends of this popular priest, filed past the bier with bowed heads, paying their last tribute to this faithful man of God, who had labored among them almost from the time he was ordained.

The Reverend John Prosseda was appointed to succeed Father Shea. Though his pastorate lasted but two short years, he was able to begin the construction of the present convent for the School Sisters of Notre Dame.

The eventual completion of this project came during the pastorate of the Reverend Joseph A. Monaco, who was appointed in 1930. Father Monaco brought to this parish not only the priestly characteristics required of him but also a wise business mind. The debt which he inherited along with the $48,000.00 required for the building of the new convent, amounted to well over $100,000.00. It was his constant desire to rid the parish of this enormous burden. His task was made even more difficult by the economic depression that befell this nation in the thirties. In order to defray the expenses of the parish and afford his flock some wholesome enjoyments, he wisely inaugurated a series of carnivals to celebrate the various feast days of the Church. These proved to be highly successful and were the forerunner of our present annual carnival. At the same time, he was in­strumental in the establishment of many parish societies, taking a personal interest in them. Through his constant solicitude for his pastoral duties, he managed to reduce the parish debt as well as further the spiritual welfare of his parishioners. Tired and worn by the constant cares of his pastorate, and the ravages of illness, he journeye homeward to his Eternal Father in 1944.

His diligent assistant, the Reverend Michael Argullo, was appointed administrator in the fall of 1944. Under his capable guidance, a drive was instituted to rid the parish of its heavy debt. The ever faithful parishioners responded to his appeal in surprising fashion. Not only was the debt liquidated but sufficient funds were donated for the erection of the magnificent and imposing campanile, which graces the epistle entrance of the Church.

Unable to disregard the accomplishments of this energetic and zealous young priest. His Excellency, the Most Reverend Bartholomew J. Eustace, Bishop of the Diocese of Camden, New Jersey, pleased the assembled congregation at the dedication of the Bell Tower, with the announcement of Father Michael's elevation to the pastorate of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish. This responsibility only served to fire this young priest to newer and greater accomplish­ments.

In 1949, the old school buildings were taxed beyond capacity with the influx of hundreds of new students seeking a Catholic education. Unable to alleviate the overcrowded conditions immediately, Father Michael leased the old Mulford School from the City of Camden, located on South Third and Walnut Streets, for $500.00 a year. At the same time, plans were being formed for the erection of a modern institution of learning. In 1953, this dream became a realization with the opening of an eleven classroom building at the cost of over $200,000.00. A drive to defray the expenses involved in providing these additional educational facilities for the youth of this parish is now under way.

During these eventful years, which have seen this parish grow from infancy to one of the largest in the diocese, many things have become traditional. There were the processions and society functions of the past, there are the processions and society functions of the present, all serving to focus interest in and around the Church itself. As the spiritual side of Church life which though ancient and unchanging ever proves to be a new and vital, so too has been the development of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish.

May Our Divine Lord and His Most Blessed Mother continue to shower us with their blessings and love, just as They have through these fifty years of the history of the parish we all love

ALTHOUGH the parish of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel was opened in 1903, it was not until 1908 that our school opened with an enroll­ment 01 319 children and two teachers - Sisters Mary Verda and a candidate, Alice Holland, of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. As the number of pupils was too great for two teachers, a third was sent for the little ones. The kindergarten was opened the following year. At this time the school was called St. Michael's and under this title it continued until the pastorate of Father Shea.

Early enrollments fluctuated between two and three hundred pupils and three or four teachers, but already by 1925 we had 890 children and in 1927, the enrollment reached 1081. This made the problem of overcrowded classrooms a serious one. Accordingly Father Shea added two floors to what had been a one-story building.  

In 1949 the abandoned Public School at South Third and Walnut Street, known to us as "The Annex" was leased. This building in the beginning housed four or five classes, but a little later seven grades were taught here.

In 1951 the walls and ceilings of our Spruce Street School were giving symptoms of old age and the superintendent ordered all grades to leave this part of the school. Teaching then took place in the meeting rooms off the hall. Building again was the order of the day, and we all know the result. Our beautiful, modern eleven-room school was opened this September.

In 1927 the parish offered our graduates a business course. The first year started with 21 pupils, both boys and girls. In 1938 due to over-crowded rooms, help was obtained from one of our old graduates and about nine years ago another commercial teacher was added to the faculty. Today the Business School has an enrollment of 135 girls. We can be proud of the reputation our commercial school has among the business people of Camden.

The history of our school is a story of growth and progress. We have under our care over 1.000 children who are cared for by 21 teachers.

THE Congregation of the School Sisters of Notre Dame was established in Bavaria in 1833. Fourteen years later their Mother Foundress, Mother Mary Teresa, answered the appeal of a Bishop in the United States by bringing four sisters to this country. Their number increased rapidly, and their first motherhouse in the United States was opened in Baltimore, Maryland. As early as 1872 Mother Mary Caroline, the first sister to be placed in charge of the order in this country, brought some of the School Sisters to Camden to teach in SS. Peter and Paul's School.

These sisters lived in a frame house on the corner of Spruce and Dauphin Streets, which house had been purchased by the School Sisters of Notre Dame. They continued to live there after the church and school of SS. Peter and Paul had been sold to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish. The parishioners of Our Lady of Mount Carmel asked to have the same kind of sisters to teach their children, and in 1908 Rev. Michael Di Ielsi succeeded in obtaining three sisters and a candidate to teach in our school. The first teachers were: Sister M. Verda, Sister M. Magdalena, Sister M. Annunciata, and Sister Alice. They had 319 pupils. The first classes were held in the parish hall at Division and Dauphin Streets, which was called "St. Michaels Hall."

Each year new classes were added, until the sisters were teaching in every available room­ what is now the garage, the Young Men's Catholic Club, and what was the clubroom of the Knights of St. George.

Until 1920, the sisters who taught both schools lived in the Spruce Street convent. That year, the parish of SS. Peter and Paul provided a convent for their teaching sisters at 834 Broadway. Sister M. Philip Neri was the first Sister Superior of the Italian school.

In 1926, Reverend Father Shea purchased the convent property from the School Sisters of Notre Dame, hoping to build a new convent for the sisters. However, this was not possible until four years later.

In 1930, the sisters moved to the third floor of the school building, and the frame house which had been used for a convent was razed. Right Reverend Bishop McMahon of the Trenton diocese helped Father Joseph Monaco raise funds to build a new and modern three-story brick convent.

By that time, there were nineteen sisters in the community, and they taught 750 children, One of these sisters - Sister M. Ferdinand - died soon after moving into the new convent, in November, 1930, and is buried in Calvary Cemetery.

Sister M. Magdalena, who had been one of the pioneers when Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School was opened, labored in other fields for a few years, then returned to our parish. Sister spent thirty years in this parish, teaching kindergarten and doing church work for most of that time.

At present there are twenty-one sisters in our convent. We also have one lay teacher, and an enrollment of 1,071 pupils.

As each year brings new improvements, we are confident that the teachers, parents, and pupils will cooperate with our parish priests to make Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School the best school in Camden.

.Twenty Sir

Mr. Mt. Carmel



If there is anyone man who could be described as "Mr. Mount Carmel", that man, without a doubt is our own beloved Albert Grassi, the reliable, unpretentious, never idle Sexton of our parish.

Albert Grassi has been working for Mount Carmel for thirty-five years.

Through those long years he's served from parish cook to trustee, and every job has been done with a patient thoroughness which is unique to Mr. Grassi. There is no living member of the parish who knows more about Mount Carmel, its history, its activities, its traditions, its many problems. It's not an uncommon thing for one of the priests or sisters to approach Albert and ask "What do we do now? - or how are we supposed to do this? - or where is such and such a thing? - what's ordinarily done about that?" He always has the answer, the solution, the remedy. We often wonder how Mount Carmel managed without him for the first fifteen years of its existence - we know that it just couldn't have during the past thirty-five.

Albert Grassi's devotion, unselfishness, self sacrifice and extreme patience will perhaps never find its equal in our parish. Everyone loves him ­and it just wouldn't be Mt. Carmel without seeing Albert quietly and busily tending to the thousand and one details that require attention in a parish of this size. He seeks no other reward but to serve God and His Church in all that he does.

We are indeed fortunate and happily blessed that we have a man like Albert Grassi. We want him to know that our gratitude will be with him always. Our prayer is that Almighty God and His Most Blessed Mother of Mount Carmel will shower him with every blessing and grace and that They will grant him that heavenly crown which he has so richly earned.  

God love you always - Albert Grassi.

Joseph Nazzario
in front of his barbershop
1211 South 4th Street

My Grandfather. Joseph Nazzario, started his first and only shop on South 4th Street in Camden. The shop  closed up after his passing in 1964. He was a long time parishioner of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, and a member of  its Italian Holy Name Society. When I was a kid, I remember going with him to one of his long time customers house, who was confined to a bed for a while. A free haircut and shave was provided free at no charge . The 50th Anniversary Book of his parish was placed on this site in his memory."
