Don Bosco Council 7784
Serving the communities of
Good Shepherd, Andover, N.J.
Our Lady Queen of Peace, Branchville, N.J.
St. Joseph's, Newton, N.J.
Our Council was Chartered May 1st, 1981 and was named in memory of St. John (Don) Bosco. It originally served the parishes of Good Shepherd in Andover, Our Lady Queen of Peace in Branchville, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Swartswood, and St. Joseph's in Newton. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel has since started its own Council. The name, Don Bosco, was suggested by Father Michael Moriarity of St. Joseph's, the original council Chaplain, because of the Saint's prominence in the area.
The council meets on the second Thursday of the month at the Sacred Heart Center, 20 Old Swartswood Road, Newton, NJ 07860 Meetings begin at 7:30 PM. Social meetings are scheduled according to the activity planned.
