St. Anastasia Parish

100The year 2015 is a special year for St. Anastasia Parish. It marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the parish. It is an occasion to celebrate. For 100 years St Anastasia parish has brought life, stability and excitement to the towns of Douglaston and Little Neck.

Spring Scripture Study

The Spring Scripture Study will focus on the official prayer of Jesus traditionally known among Catholics as “the Our Father”. It is filled with allusions to the Old Testament yet has to be understood through parallel ideas found in the Gospels, especially the Gospel of Matthew. An early church writer called this prayer “a brief form of the whole Gospel”.

Sessions will be held on the following 5 Mondays: April 24, May 1, 8, 15 and 22. Participants can choose either the afternoon session from 1:15-2:30 pm OR the evening session from 7:30–9:00 pm. Sessions are held in the Parish Center on 245 Street and Northern Blvd. All are welcome!

Attention Teens: A New Youth Group is Forming

There is a new Youth Group in the formation stages right now for our Parish. If you are in 8th grade this year or in High School already this should be of interest. It will be fun!

There will be more information available in the coming weeks, so please watch the bulletin each week for updates. We will be looking for volunteer teens, and some volunteer teen parents to help chaperone upcoming events.
