St. Mary's Church, Newark NJ

Augustine Curley's picture

For a history of St. Mary's Church, Newark, N.J., tentatively entitled "Neither Territorial nor National: An Urban Benedictine Parish Forges Its Own Path," I would appreciate any leads to archival material or reminiscences, references in books, photographs, etc., that would not easily be found by the usual searching methods. St. Mary's was founded in 1842 to serve the immigrant German population, and has been, since 1857, a monastery Church. Over the years it has served various ethnic populations, most recently west Africans.
