John Croes (1762, Elizabeth, New Jersey - July 26, 1832, New Brunswick, New Jersey) was a Bishop in the Episcopal Church. Croes served in the Revolutionary War as a sergeant and quartermaster. He studied for the ministry of the Episcopal Church and was ordained deacon by Bishop William White in Philadelphia, on February 28, 1790, and priest in March 1792. He was uniformly active and zealous in the service of the Church, in both diocesan and general conventions. He first served as rector of Trinity Church, Swedesboro, New Jersey, and was called as rector of Christ Church, New Brunswick, in 1801, and also served as principal of Rutgers Preparatory School. He was elected bishop of New Jersey in the summer, and ordained Bishop of New Jersey in Philadelphia in November 1815. He is buried beneath the chancel of Christ Church (New Brunswick, NJ).show more
