Ss Peter & Paul is a community rich in history and tradition; a parish that has provided for the spiritual, social, and educational needs of countless people in our area for over 125 years. Originally organized to serve the many German immigrants living in Hudson County, the parish celebrated its first mass in 1889, in the parlor of the current rectory. After a unanimous vote, those present at the inaugural mass agreed to name their new parish after two great saints: Peter and Paul. A long way from its German roots, the parish ministers not only to those who have been raised in Hoboken, but to the young adults and many families who now call Hoboken their home. Interestingly, over 57% of those 50,000+ who live here have moved in over the last 15 years. Parishioners and visitors often marvel at the inspiring stained glass present on both sides of the nave. This book is an invitation to discover the biblical meaning behind each stained glass.
