The beautiful church is worth visiting. It rivals some of the smaller churches I visited in Rome. The painted ceiling and walls will make you think you’re in Italy 🇮🇹.

We were walking around Newark and came across this church. It's not as spectacular as the Cathedral Basilica just a few blocks away, but this is still a gem worth seeing if you enjoy old churches and architecture!

Architectural gem. Feel the spirit wash over you and enjoy the grandeur. The building and statues. St. Gerard shrine is beloved. Go for the feast of St Gerard in October. See old world Italian traditions live on. Be safe, stay within compound. Neighborhood not safe.
