St Lucys RC church in Newark, NJ

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

I go there to the Feast of St. Gerard every fall...but I suspect that's not the type of connection you're looking for...LOL. I do have a friend who grew up in that parish. What are you looking for?

BTW, for anyone near Newark, it's a great feast.

I was just wondering if anyone had a connection to this parish. It's a rreal unique place for sure, very old fashioned type of church. It is a shame that they are closing down so many of the old Italian ethnic parishes in the USA. So much of the culture and neiborhoods have already been lost. The churches are usually the last places standing that remind us of our history and culutre.

I got married at this church last year. It's so beautiful. It's considered a historic site in Newark.
