We are honored to have been selected as one of six parishes designated by the Diocese of Brooklyn to having a Holy Door for the Jubilee Holy Year of Mercy during our 175th anniversary year as a parish.
Our diocesan newspaper, The Tablet, sent reporter Maria-Pia Negro Chin to cover the blessing and opening of the Holy Door of Mercy which took place on December 13, 2015 with a beautiful mass led by our main celebrant, Bishop Octavio Cisneros. Below is a picture of Bishop Cisneros opening our Holy Door. Here is the link to the complete photo album: (CLICK HERE)
Thank you to Mrs. Negro Chin and The Tablet for allowing us to post these pictures.
