Bishop Chappetto con-celebrated mass with Fr. Berrette and Fr. Nixon during Catholic School’s Week. After the mass, the Gospel Choir, the PreK and the 2nd Grade serenaded the Bishop, a mini breakfast was provided and the Bishop toured the classrooms. Grace and blessings abounded. We were delighted to host Bishop Chappetto the Vicar General and Ms. Anne-Marie Baumis, Associate Superintendent of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Brooklyn/Queens.

Kids Financial Literacy Program

Ideal Uniform Company sponsored the Kids Financial Literacy Program. The program was for our students in grades 5,6,7,& 8. It taught them all about different financial aspects of the world, from the basics of money to the stock market and real estate. The students had a great experience and learned much about the financial world. Our students each received a workbook and teachers received a teachers edition so that they could continue the lessons. We would like to thank Mr. Morris Kassab for making this program possible.

Farewell to Fr. Robinson

” After meeting with me twice Bishop DiMarzio has decided to have me retire as pastor at the end of the month. Retirement means becoming an “active senior priest”, living and working in a parish part time in Brooklyn. I will be nearer my family, doctors and familiar locations of my childhood. The stress will be taken away while the need to work as a priest continues.

Leaving this parish is not easy because of the many events that we have shared together. I am grateful for all that you have done to help me these past nine years and will continue to pray for you and encouraged as I am by those who work selflessly for the greater glory of God in this community.”                                Fr. Robinson



Farewell Party for Fr. Robinson

January 29, 2017 at 3:00PM
