This time around I'm taking a look at St. Joseph's Church in Toms River. St. Joesph's Church dates back to the 1870s and became the first Catholic Church in Toms River with the first Church built circa 1882. According to St. Joseph's website  it was "under the direction and guidance of Monsignor Casimir H. Ladzinski, our pastor from 1987 to 1996, our present 1,200 seat church, was planned and built, culminating with John C. Reiss, Bishop of Trenton, dedicating and blessing it on January 9, 1993."

I have a strong connection with St. Joseph's because that is where I made my "first communion" as a child growing up here in Toms River. Funny story, for my "first communion" I received a small black and white television for my bedroom as a present....cutting edge technology for the time :) fun memories with St. Joseph's Church in Toms River, are YOU a parishioner?

Take a look at the Church and other parts of their Toms River Campus....
