The fourth decade began with the purchase of property on Centerport harbor on Long Island. This became Mount Alvernia and Camp Alvernia, which is the oldest continuously run camp in the State of New York. The Brothers opened more schools in Brooklyn as well as in Mattewan, NY and Jersey City, NJ. Three Brothers went to Australia for 4 years to assist friars there. By the end of the decade, the community of over 90 Brothers served in 20 schools, with most Brothers walking to their work from the Monastery on Butler St.
