Religions Practiced in the New Jersey Colony
The New jersey people consisted of the Catholic and Protestant religions. The King was the person who told people who and what to believe in when the people were in Europe. The New jersey Colony embraced a variety of religions. By 1701 the colony had 45 distinct congregations. The people were unable to afford churches, so most of the people wanting o worship would have to do it in a home or a barn. Baptism and communion were offered only by the occasional traveling minister.
