St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church is a historic church at 457 Monmouth Street in The Village Section of Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, United States.

History[edit]

Prior to church's construction, Polish parishioners in Jersey City had to take a ferry across to Newark to attend St. Stanislaus Church.[3] The church was built in 1892 to serve what is now the oldest Polish-speaking parish in New Jersey. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
