        The idea for St. Patrick's church was born in 1848 by Father Moran of St. John's.  Father Moran was more than just the leader of St. John's church.  He had a hand in all aspects of building and running a church.  He was an architect, builder and superintendent.  He was born in Ireland, came to America in 1827 and ordained in 1832 and was a leader in the Temperance movement.
        The land for St. Patrick's church, on the corner of Central Ave. and Washington St. was bought secretly and Father Moran served as the architect.   The church was dedicated on March 17, 1850 by Bishop John Hughes of New York.  The finished church was of brick Gothic structure and held 2,000 members.  In 1853, the Diocese of Newark was formed with St. Patrick's as its cathedral.  The parish schools were founded in 1859.
