Soon after the riots of 1967 tore through Newark’s Central Ward, 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 priest, New Community was born in 1968 from the ashes of racism, poverty and despair.
On March 3, 2018 we will honor a man who has been there from the very beginning.
Join us as we honor Monsignor William J. Linder for his never-ending commitment to Newark.
