Solemn High Mass at the church of St Anthony of Padua. An old Polish immigrant parish: one of several in our area which have supported the Traditional Mass. This liturgy commemorated the thirteenth anniversary of the return of the Traditional Mass to Jersey City.
The highlight of the musical program was the Missa Brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo of Joseph Haydn.
The above crucifix stood on the high altar of the original church, destroyed by fire in 1895. Miraculously saved, it has been an object of devotion in the new church since its construction in the 1890’s.
