Our Lady of Grace Church
Welcoming, accepting and diverse, Our Lady of Grace is a part of the Archdiocese of Newark within the Catholic Community. The parish of Our Lady of Grace, one of the oldest in the United States, was founded in 1851. The existing church structure was erected circa 1878 and is considered one of the first to be built in the German Gothic style and is the largest church in Hoboken. The magnificent pipe organ, installed in 1909, is a national recognized historic instrument. The sanctuary is a perfect space for breathtaking music from a wide-variety of sources and traditions and is a central and essential home to Hoboken’s spiritual and cultural life. The music program at Our Lady of Grace reflects the diversity of the Hudson County Metropolitan Area’s cultures and is committed to excellence and community service.
