Elizabeth – Our Lady of Fatima (Sacred Heart)

By | November 8, 2011

Originally dedicated to St. Henry, the name of the parish was changed to Sacred Heart in 1887. In 1983, the parish of Sacred Heart was suppressed and the church given to the parish of Our Lady of Fatima. The parish serves a predominantly Portuguese-American congregation.

What happened to the Cemetery affiiated with the Sacred Heart Church? My grand-Aunt “Eleanor (Fitzgibbon) Pierce” was apparently buried there in 1911.
