The Passing of Bishop Joseph Galante, Diocese of Camden

May 28, 2019 – Camden Catholic High School mourns the passing of Bishop Joseph Galante, who died on Saturday at the age of 80. Bishop Galante led the Diocese of Camden from 2004 through 2013. CCHS President Emeritus Monsignor Andrew Martin stated, “Bishop Galante was a kind man, and a courageous bishop who served this diocese very well in recognizing not only the spiritual needs of the diocese but the temporal needs as well, requiring difficult decisions that were made for the good of the Church here in South Jersey. He knew and loved his priests as his brothers. I personally experienced his kindness and understanding on more than a few occasions. May God give him the reward he so richly deserves.”
