Mosque of Jesus, Son of Mary
The Mosque of Jesus, Son of Mary stands in the place of the former Holy Trinity catholic church on Park St. in the north side of Syracuse. Copper crescents have taken the place of crosses. Northside was once full of Italian and German immigrants, now they are filled with new Americans who brought with them their Islamic faith.
Syracuse.com explains in an April 6, 2014 article, “Plans to turn a church into a mosque bring pain and hope to a changing neighborhood,” everything evens out because the mosque will be named the Mosque of Jesus, Son of Mary ” to build a bridge between the old and the new.
