our lady help of christians catholic church

This church that sits on Meadow Street has remained empty for some years. Originally catering to the large Italian population, the church was later used for smaller black congregations until ultimately ending up vacant.

A passerby noticed me taking a picture and came to speak with me. He told me that he once attended a service in the church 20 years ago. We talked for a bit about the changing neighborhood demographics and how unfortunate it was that the church had remained empty all these years. He shook his head and said, “It’s a shame that some folks leave and they think souls don’t need saving anymore.”
