Myers, da Cunha talk with NCR


8th in the series

Here is another story from my visit to Newark, N.J. I spent an hour with Newark Archbishop John Myers and Auxiliary Bishop Edgar da Cunha. The discussion was wide ranging: Financial problems, demographic shifts and continuous waves of new immigrants create particular problems as well as opportunity for the church in Newark. We also touched a bit on science fiction.

Today's story is titled: Myers, da Cunha discuss problems, promise of Newark.
