Traditional Latin Mass, Consecration Main Altar

With the gracious permission of the Archbishop of Newark, the Most Reverend John Myers, the Institute of Christ the King assigned a priest to the Latin Mass Community at St. Anthony of Padua in West Orange, New Jersey, in 2007.

St. Anthony of Padua Oratory is situated in a pleasant residential neighborhood in West Orange, about 20 minutes from the beautiful Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark and 40 minutes from downtown New York. While being a newer church building, it boasts an elegant high altar and an array of devotional statues and stained glass windows. With a well-sized rectory, it is located in a wooded area, with well-entertained, beautifully landscaped gardens and a large parking lot. The church is easily accessible from all directions. All are welcome!
