The Cross, the symbol of the Victory of Christ reminds me that for every Cross in our lives there is a resurrection. It reminds us for every dark night there is a bright day and for every suffering which seems meaningless, there is an abundance of life lessons. St. Paul preached Christ Crucified. If that message is not one of Risen hope, what is?

The message of Resurrection is that the love of God for us is victorious, brings us in union with God, new hope and life in abundance on both sides of eternity.

Please continue to celebrate with us, either in-person or online through our parish facebook, website or youtube channel.

We hope you will be able to support the work of the parish with your Easter gift by texting “EASTER” to 718-400-7076

We miss you all greatly, please know that you remain in my prayers. Your participation in the life of the church community is a blessing for you and for me.

We wish you and your loved ones a Glorious Easter season!

Congratulations to This Years’ First Communion and Confirmation Candidates

We are happy to announce that we have 42 children receiving First Holy Communion and 20 receiving Confirmation in the month of May. All of these sacraments will take place at Masses outside of the regular Saturday & Sunday Mass times in order to maximize the number for family members each child may have attend. Please pray for our young people; they each take another step in their sacramental life.

I am the Church, You are the Church, We are the Church, Together!  – Where are you in your faith journey?

Evangelization – the essential mission of the Church. As Jesus said at the end of the Gospel of Matthew: “Go and make disciples of all nations.” To evangelize means to bring the good news of the Gospel to all we encounter by teaching, being channels of the gift of grace, reconciling sinners with God, and perpetuating Christ’s sacrifice in the Mass. The fruit of evangelization is new disciples of Jesus.

Disciple – a person who accepts and assists in the spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ. Christian discipleship is the process by which disciples grow in the Lord Jesus Christ and are equipped by the Holy Spirit, who resides in our hearts, to overcome the pressures and trials of this present life and become more and more Christlike. This process requires believers to respond to the Holy Spirit’s prompting to examine their thoughts, words and actions and compare them with the Word of God and the Tradition of the Church as good stewards.

Steward – a person who accepts the responsibility that Christians have in maintaining and using wisely the gifts that God has bestowed. God wishes us to be his collaborators in the work of creation, redemption and sanctification. A good steward gives of their time, talent and treasure in order to be an collaborator in the work of evangelization.
