River Edge – Saint Peter the Apostle

By | January 22, 2012

Originally built as an “auditorium church” in 1952, Saint Peter’s has been transformed into a magnificent postmodern church building. Over the years there were a series of renovations but finally in 1999-2000, after an extensive renovation, a new church appeared. Anthony Genovese was the architect and designer of the “new” church that includes a new entrance and bell tower. Genovese incorporated many elements from previous renovations of the church.

For an excellent “church tour” that includes a liturgical, architectural, and theological explanation of this transformation, see http://www.saint-peter.org/tour_intro.htm

Mahwah – Immaculate Conception

Constructed from field stone found on the property, this charming little country church was established as a mission under the direction of the rector of Immaculate Conception Seminary shortly after the seminary moved to Mahwah in 1927. The seminary returned to Seton Hall University in South Orange NJ in 1984.

The story of the stained glass windows is intriguing.
