We will be celebrating the 80th Anniversary of Our Lady of the Angelus Church. There will be a Dinner Dance on October 7th at the Astoria World Manor.
Tickets will be $80 per person and will be available beginning this weekend at the entrance of the Church after all the Masses.
Join us on this joyous occasion and invite family and friends. Make this celebration splendid, successful and memorable.
Hopefully, both the windows and the pews projects will be all done.
Many people have commented that the Church looks very beautiful.
May almighty God make our hearts pure, so that our sacrifice may rise to the heavenly choir of Angels and Saints.
All of you have witnessed the remarkable improvements to the Church.
I wish someone had won a lottery. Unfortunately no one had that good luck. There are many groups in the Parish, some big and some small. I urge these groups to fund raise. When I took over this Parish, there wasn’t a single dollar in the Parish account. You are always welcome to talk to me or the trustees of that time. It hasn’t been easy to take the giant step and accomplish so much. Unfortunately, many people don’t take the bulletin and those who do take the bulletin do not read it. That’s sad.
I earnestly ask your support and help. “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” Lets keep our Church lovely and beautiful that will draw many people to give glory to God. The groups are wonderful but sometimes they do not realize that prayer has to be translated into action. Let us all in whatever way we can build the temple of God.
Thanks and God bless you.
Private Memorial Masses in English and Spanish are available.
Please stop by the rectory to arrange your Memorial Mass during office hours.
We do not have an adequate number of volunteers for the Food Pantry. If you are interested, please call the rectory office 718-897-4444.
When you exit the Church, please leave everything neat and in order. Do not take away missalettes. Since pews are polished and shining kindly do not place water cups on them. The kneelers are re-done handle them with care.
All groups that meet in the Church, please do not move furniture. Also double check that all the doors are properly closed and locked as you exit
Your cooperation is very important to keep our Church in great shape.
