READ ALL ABOUT IT!
Every Sunday throughout our Diocese, in 187 parishes similar to Saint Nick’s, the faithful of our Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens come together to share the good news of our Catholic faith. But 365 days out of the year, members of our diocesan family and our own parish family are living out the Scriptures in ways that continuously respond and renew us in our faith. Last year alone, our Parish assisted our brothers and sisters in hearing the gospel through our parish religious education program and our parish school. We offer numerous prayer groups, opportunities to grow in faith and bible studies, and offer various retreat and prayer experiences. We reach out to the needy through our food pantry and an active St. Vincent de Paul society. We offer opportunities to our youth through youth center activities as well as a large sports program. We seek to welcome the immigrant through Mass in Spanish, as well as offering classes in English as a Second language.
Each year brings many known and unknown challenges to the local Church, and we are charged to do our part. Please reflect upon the importance of serving Christ as expressed in this year’s Appeal theme: When we give, we share the light of faith. The Annual Catholic Appeal is a key way for our parish to share its gifts with others. All are asked to make a commitment to the important works of our Diocese through the Appeal. Please give, according to your means, to this important drive.
Finally, we have an important local projects for the Annual Appeal.
It is important to remember that once our parish reaches its target goal of 75,301.00, we will receive 100% of all the funds raised over our goal to develop a new “Mary Garden” by the statue near the corner of Parsons and Goethals, as well as a new system of security cameras for the parish grounds.
