"Strong Minds, Generous Hearts, And Powerful Arms": A History Of The Foundations Of The Archdiocese Of New York
Since it was established over 200 years ago, the Archdiocese of New York has been a major force in both New York City and the larger world. From its origins in St. Peter's Church, Barclay Street, to the over 400 parishes that exist today, generations of New York Catholics have truly, as Archbishop John Hughes said at the laying of the cornerstone of St. Patrick?s Cathedral, put their "strong minds, generous hearts, and powerful arms" to work building what to this day remains a foundation of the everyday lives of millions of people. While many are familiar with the major dates and players of the Archdiocese's history, this exhibit, while not overlooking those important features, also draws attention to lesser-known people, events, and places, with particular attention on the charitable works overseen by the Archdiocese and the various religious groups operating within it.
The exhibit will run from October 2014 through January 2015, and is by appointment only. To schedule an appointment to visit the exhibition please contact the Archives of the Archdiocese of New York at firstname.lastname@example.org or (914) 968-6200 x. 8365.
