Saint Peter’s Roman Catholic Church in Belleville, New Jersey has been around since 1838. Considering the Irish-sounding names of the Board of Trustees and the “Irish Hill” the church was built on, I have inferred that St. Peter’s mostly served an Irish Catholic neighborhood. But only at first! St. Peter’s adapted to Belleville’s changing ethnic landscape. In the 1980s, more Spanish-speaking parishioners required the church to include Spanish Masses. As Filipino and Vietnamese immigrants moved into the neighborhood, St. Peter’s added to its schedule again to welcome them as well. Despite financial struggles and the effect modern culture has had on religion in general, St. Peter’s endeavors to remain a safe and accepting space for all people looking to hear the Word.
