. . .

Joseph A. Vancio, Director of Stewardship for the Archdiocese . . and Msgr. Robert J. Wister, professor of Church history at Seton Hall University, are in the midst of planning “The Heritage Tour—Treasured Churches of the Archdiocese of Newark,” a one-day guided tour on Nov. 6, through six churches within the Archdiocese. These churches, the first selected among many, stand as beacons of artistic ingenuity and testaments of deep and abiding faith.

. . .

He explained that the six churches chosen for the tour are also among the oldest, “Most churches built in the last half-century, with very few exceptions, can not compare in beauty and artistic craftsmanship to the churches built 100 or more years ago.”

The parishes on the tour include St. Patrick Pro-Cathedral, Newark (1850); the Church of St. Columba, Newark (1899); the Church of the Sacred Heart (Vailsburg), Newark (1929); the Church of St. John, Orange (1869); the Church of St. John the Baptist, Jersey City (1884), and St. Aloysius Parish, (Lincoln Park), Jersey City (1908).

. . .

The tour will be open to the general public, and will cost $30 a person. Space is limited to about 50 people. A bus will depart from the Archdiocesan Center, Newark, at around 9:30 a.m. and return at about 4 p.m. Vancio and Msgr. Wister will serve as tour guides at each of the churches.

. . .
