Teach, build, and serve, a legend taken from the mission statement of the Archdiocese of Newark, encompasses the vibrant spirit emblematic of this see from official conception in 1853 through its sesquicentennial observance in 2003. Those who call the archdiocese home share a common religious history and a collective picture of their faith in action from old-world roots.
Generations of Catholics who live in the northern New Jersey counties of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Union have shared such devotions as attending Mass, special feast days, parochial education, organizational affiliations, church socials, and many other articles of celebration with their families, friends, priests, religious sisters, and others who collectively define the essence of neighborly communion. This volume provides a basic narrative and visual overview designed to honor the individuals, milestones, and varied landmarks that make the Archdiocese of Newark memorable and inspirational.
Highlights of Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark:
• Each parish within the Archdiocese of Newark is mentioned by name and city within the book.
