Twenty-thousand peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but no word on how much milk was needed to wash them all down. That's the news this month from Christ the King Church in Haddonfield. A group of teens involved in an ongoing service project at the church reached the PB&J milestone this month. The sandwiches are sent to Camden's Cathedral Kitchen to be distributed to the needy. Started in November 2009, it's a service project for the boys making their confirmation at Christ the King Church, a church member said. There are 14 families and about 35 kids and adults who have fueled the effort over the years.

A burgeoning Catholic population in 18th-century Haddonfield—and many moves—helped establish Christ the King Church.

In the latter part of the 18th century and even in the early part of the 20th century, Haddonfield was a quaintly old and sternly religious borough. Brennan says that the church’s history noted that a handful of working Catholics that lived there suffered and sacrificed Sunday after Sunday to …
