2018 Annual Catholic Appeal

This week begins the 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal. We thank all who have participated with a gift to the 2017 Appeal and ask that everyone prayerfully consider making a gift to the 2018 Appeal.

The work and services made possible through your donation to the Annual Catholic Appeal help people in Brooklyn and Queens in ways that no one parish can alone.

We encourage all to watch the following brief 2018 ACA Video.

Lenten Almsgiving

We will be collecting gift cards for supermarkets this year once again as a part of our Lenten almsgiving. This is going to be very specific: We ask if you would like to participate, please restrict your gift cards to these supermarkets: Stop and Shop, and Shoprite. (these supermarkets are convenient to those who will be helped by your donation of a card(s). There will be a box available in the church in which to drop the cards when you come to Mass or you may bring them to the rectory office.

We do not want non-perishable food left in the back of the Church as is done at Thanksgiving—this presents a problem of transport and extra maintenance supervision.

Your gift of food is appreciated in the form of a gift card and makes it much easier for those who receive it to buy the food they so desperately need.

Bishop DiMarzio Suspends Distribution of the Precious Blood of Jesus Due to the severe Outbreak of the Flu

As you know this has been a bad flu season. Bishop DiMarzio has decided to take some steps to safeguard the People of God.

The Bishop has mandated that we not distribute the precious Blood to people at Mass. This suspension will be lifted upon conclusion of the flu season.

In addition, all are asked to exchange sign of peace by a bow to each other while saying “Peace be with you”. It is also strongly suggested that if you experience the flu that you not attend Mass until you are well again.

May the lord continue to bless you and grant us all good health!
