NCC Founder Releases New Book
"Out of the Ashes Came Hope" is an inspiring and timely memoir that illuminates the life work of Monsignor William J. Linder, who founded New Community in 1968. The book recounts how as a newly ordained priest, Monsignor underwent a radical transformation once he was assigned to the all-black parish at Queen of Angels in Newark. As a messenger of God's love, Monsignor's journey to Newark actives and galvanizes the community to believe that change is possible, and together they embark on a task of epic proportions—to rebuild Newark's Central Ward. "Out of the Ashes Came Hope" is available on Amazon.
Established in the midst of civil unrest in Newark in 1968, New Community was founded by Monsignor William J. Linder and a small group of civic-minded residents. Since then, New Community has grown into one of the largest and most comprehensive community development corporations in the country. Read more.
