Welcome to St. Adalbert Parish

 

We are celebrating over 125 years of service to the community of Elmhurst. There is always something happening at our Franciscan Parish.  We are a diverse and vibrant community with a variety of ministries, parish groups from preschool to senior adults and an excellent Catholic Academy. You are invited to join us. Let’s be a church together rather than just a people who go to church.

 

"One Family Living in Faith and Love"

The Filipino-American Community of St. Adalbert

The Filipino-American Community of St Adalbert will offer two consecutive evenings of prayer vigils to honor the Passion of Christ on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross on September 14 and the Feast of Our lady of Sorrows on September 15. The community will chant the Passion of Christ as it had been sung since the earliest years of Filipino Catholic tradition, meditating on the suffering Christ. Those unable to chant can still join the vigil by silently reading and meditating on the Passion, or by praying the sorrowful mystery of the Rosary, the stations of the cross or any appropriate prayer they choise. The veneration of the cross and blessing of the relic of the true cross will conclude the vigil. On the following evening, September 15th, the rosary of the seven sorrows of Our lady will be recited and a meditation on Mary beneath the Cross will be offered. Both vigils begin at 7 pm by the Marian square beside the church, weather permitting otherwise the events will take place at the lower church. All are invited.

Parish News

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

St. Adalbert’s Church is re-open for daily Masses and weekend Masses.  We come together again to be nourished by the spiritual food we have been desperately waiting for. Catholics in Brooklyn and Queens have been longing for the celebration of Mass and to receive the Holy Eucharist. We can finally once again safely receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion.

We are back in church for all Masses and practicing “social distancing” dealing with masks and sanitizing our hands. We are once again doing Baptisms and Funerals observing, of course, the protocols of social distancing, etc.

I am asking all parishioners to invite those who are able to come to Mass and begin the tradition to “new normal”. Of course, the elderly and vulnerable should not be “pushed” in any way to come! But spread the word! We are very much “open for business”! Very much wanting to see all our people!

God Bless you all,

Fr. Mirek

 

A prayer in a time of coronavirus

A prayer in a time of coronavirus

Keep us, o Lord, under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may rejoice in your comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love. 
God of compassion, be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation. Comfort and heal them, and restore them to health and strength. Gracious God, bless doctors, nurses and medical staff, give them skills, sympathy and resilience as they care for the sick, and your wisdom to those searching for a cure. Strengthen them with your Spirit, that through their work many will be restored to health. 
We are your people God, giving and loving, help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe. Amen.
