Holy Spirit Parish in Asbury Park held a groundbreaking ceremony for the St. Peter Claver Outreach Center yesterday. The site at the corner of Springwood and Ridge Avenues, which once held the St. Peter Claver Church, has been vacant for some time. The land has been repurposed in order to continue the legacy of service among the Black community exemplified by St. Peter Claver Church and its namesake. While the building will house an array of activities, the Society of St. Vincent DePaul will use the Center on a daily basis to coordinate assistance for those in need. The former members of St. Peter Claver Parish were formally integrated into Holy Spirit Parish in July 2012. They will join together with all the Catholic churches in Asbury Park to support this new endeavor.
