St. Babs Church of All Religions

St. Babs is an early 20th century, clapboard country church that has been repurposed to serve as a community hub for Goshen Township and Cape May County, primarily through spiritual and arts programming. Collaborative volunteers developed a strategy for restoring and renovating the historic structure and cemetery. Improvements include repairing or replacing building systems, repainting the exterior, and adding an accessible entrance and bathrooms. Our volunteers also proposed site improvements to extend St. Babs’ healing work outside.
