Parish Mission Statement:
We, the Faith Community of Our Lady of the Angelus Parish in Rego Park, New York, form a multicultural congregation which provides support to each other and help to the people of our community.

With the Gospel of Jesus Christ as our spiritual guide we proclaim the Word of God at our liturgies, celebrating the Holy Eucharist and administering the sacraments while reaching out to our parishioners, and welcoming everyone.

We are committed to serve our community with our Time, Talents and Treasure. We support services for the elderly, the home-bound and the youth with education and spiritual formation.

We seek to become the Kingdom of God through spiritual, educational and social activities.
