As the first Catholic Church in Lyndhurst, the history of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church is very rich. Although it is not known when the actual building was constructed, we do know it was not always a place of worship. Both municipal and ecclesiastical records date back to 1849; however, that is where the records stop. Believe it or not, 149 Copeland Avenue – our church, once housed a family of people and a family of hogs in the cellar.
