This Monday is Labor Day, a federal holiday. There will be only one Mass at 9AM in the upper church. Please note that following the Rosary after Mass, the Church and the Rectory Office will be closed for the rest of the day. 

This coming Wednesday, September 7, will be the last day to register children for our Religious Education Program this fall. All children who have not made their sacraments must receive religious instruction.  Please contact our parish office to register your child as soon as possible. 

On Saturday, September 24, at 11AM, there will be a special Wedding Anniversary Mass celebrated by Bishop Robert Brennan at Resurrection-Ascension Church in Rego Park, Queens. All married couples regardless of the anniversary year are invited to renew their vows. They may also bring family and friends to witness their exchange and continued commitment to one another. The deadline to register your participation will be this Friday, September 9. Please contact the parish office for more information.

On Saturday, October 22, the Diocese of Brooklyn will have the biannual Pilgrimage to the National Shrine and Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, Washington, DC. You are cordially invited to join Msgr. Pham, the priests and lay faithful of our parish in this one-day Pilgrimage to the nation’s Capital to honor the Mother of God, and to pray for our nation, our community and families. Please refer to the Pastor’s Letter in this weekend’s bulletin for detailed information. Space is limited on the bus and may be reserved on a first come, first serve basis.


Our parish is in great need of faithful men, women and youth to serve as ushers at the English Sunday Masses. Ushers offer the people who come to church a sense of welcome and belonging. They also assist with the collection of offerings and enhance the reverence of the Mass. If you want to serve the Lord in this pleasant ministry, please leave your name and number at the parish office or speak to one of our priests. 

We are happy to report that, to date, 185 parishioners have pledged a total of $64,107 to the Annual Catholic Appeal, of which $56,341 have already been collected. We thank those who have donated and invite all to consider joining us to support our local Church. Donation envelopes are available at the church entrances for your convenience.
