Out of The Ashes Came Hope
It has been 50 years since the rebellion of 1967 tore through Newark’s Central Ward in response to years of racially targeted discrimination, economic disinvestment, political disenfranchisement and police brutality—issues that resonate in today’s political climate. But while New Community was born in 1968 from the ashes of racism, poverty and despair, its essence was deeply rooted in the strength, resolve and dedication of men and women, Newark residents, to help themselves improve the quality of their lives and their community.
It has been a long time since the riots of 1967 tore through Newark’s Central Ward. However, soon after the riots, there was the coming together of a community, where those who wanted to make a better life, stood together, prayed, and worked toward rebuilding a new life. Lead by a group of parishioners and its dedicated catholic priests, New Community was born in 1968 from the ashes of racism, poverty and despair.
Please take a moment to reflect and be inspired by this significant achievement and join us in celebrating this milestone event on March 3, 2018, from 6-9 pm at Hilton, East Rutherford, NJ. The formal gala will feature live entertainment, a cocktail reception and delicious dinner.

Our Founder's Memoirs
“Out of the Ashes Came Hope” is an inspiring and timely memoir that illuminates the life work of Monsignor William J. Linder, who founded New Community in 1968. The book recounts how as a newly ordained priest, Monsignor underwent a radical transformation once he was assigned to the all-black parish at Queen of Angels in Newark. As a messenger of God’s love, Monsignor’s journey to Newark activates and galvanizes the community to believe that change is possible, and together they embark on a task of epic proportions—to rebuild Newark’s Central Ward.
