CCLSJ was founded as an act of collaboration between the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus, the Diocese of Camden and lay ministers. We seek to promote justice for the poor and marginalized in the City of Camden and throughout Southern New Jersey. Together with our partners in Ministry at JUST, and in cooperation with the Bishop of Camden, we strive to find God in all things and work to build the Kingdom of God through our legal ministry to the immigrant community and the working poor.
