Memories of St Nicholas, Perth Amboy

A 1950's (?) era photo of the choir at St Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church in Perth Amboy, NJ. Front row center are Fr Julius Grigassy and Prof. John Petach (my grandfather).

This appears to be Pascha at St Nicholas. The pictures are dated as April 15th, 1956. The parish is still active, but with a considerably smaller congregation than in the 1950's. More recently in 2009, the altar was restored to the proper square shape and an iconstas has been installed
