Bellmawr - Mt. Ephraim NJ

The Order Sons of Italy in America® (OSIA) is the largest and oldest national organization for men and women of Italian heritage in the United States.
OSIA has hundreds of lodges (chapters) located nationwide. Lodges meet regularly for social and community-oriented activities. 

Vita Nuova (new life) Lodge was formed December 2007 when two former lodges, The William Paca Lodge #2327 of Bellmawr and the Mt. Ephraim Lodge #2362 merged to form,
Vita Nuova Lodge #2327 Bellmawr – Mt. Ephraim NJ.

  Today, we continue to support local community events along with many local schools, churches and public departments in both communities. Our lodge also supports many charities as well as the sponsored charities of the NJ State OSIA Foundation such as Cooley's Anemia, Alzheimer's disease, Arthritis and the Alicia Rose Vicorious Foundation and National OSIA  CSJ –Commission for Social Justice,  along with our yearly scholarships.

As an Italian-American Lodge, Vita Nuova supports the preservation and continued education of the Italian-American culture.
