Church of the Holy Communion
Paterson, Passaic County

Episcopal congregations built in an English tradition through much of the mid-to-late nineteenth century, and this stone building, erected in 1871, is no exception. There is an east-facing altar, an articulated chancel, and the rusticated stone, a suggestion of buttresses, a steeply sloping roofline, and the open timberwork that are characteristic of the Episcopal Gothic idiom in architecture.
