BAYONNE, NJ - Members of various churches, previously closed due to the COVID-19, are continuing a tradition they started during the pandemic.

Every Thursday from just shortly before noon, people from the different congregations have been joining together in the 16th Street Park, offering food, drink and religious songs.

The group gathers under the trees, sets up tables and brings out water, soda, coffee, deserts, pizza and more, including prayer, to share with park-goers.
