This church was part of both the elementary and high school I attended while living in Elizabeth, New Jersey: Saint Patrick‘s. Not to be confused with Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York. Unfortunately, the high school recently closed due to finances. However, I also heard that the high school may reopen at a new location. The school is quite an important one, especially for basketball.

The St. Patrick boys basketball team has won 13 state championships and produced more than 100 NCAA Division 1 players. The school has recently pumped out players such as Kyrie Irving, the No. 1 pick in last year’s NBA draft and the 2012 Rookie of the Year; and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who helped lead Kentucky to this year’s college national championship and was recently selected No. 2 overall in the 2012 NBA Draft.

St. Patrick was founded in 1868 and is one of the oldest parochial schools in New Jersey.”
