This is our first visit to Essex Fells, NJ. From Eagle Rock (1km away) you can look down on New York - what a view! From the 9/11 Memorial Garden you can make out the famous landmarks, and see where the twin towers once stood. Many of the locals work in Wall Street.
St Peter's Church is a well equipped religious centre, complete with plush drawing rooms, a rehearsal room and a large hall for all the church to eat in. The church itself is an attractive space, but with little acoustic. We have been brilliantly looked after - from the lunch yesterday, to the party after the concert and now the brunch (that great American institution) today. The audience last night was most enthusiastic and our CDs sales were the best yet.
This morning we joined with the Choir of St Peter's for the Sung Eucharist - always great to hook up - and our own Father Steve read the gospel.
I am not able to upload photos today, but will hope to tomorrow.
