Jersey City – St. Aedan’s

By | January 3, 2011

The parish was founded in 1912. The present church was completed at a cost of $1 million in the depths of the Depression, the impressive St. Aedan’s Church sits on the highest point in Jersey City. The Romanesque structure has a Byzantine character as well. In addition, the influence of Art Moderne and Art Deco is evident in details of the exterior facade and the interior appointments. The interior, although dark, glows with magnificent mosaics.

Fortunately, the church has not been renovated and it preserves its original and spectacular character.

It now serves as the Collegiate Chapel of St. Peter’s College, maintaining many parish functions and activities.
