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"


We have returned to our regular Mass schedule. Weekday Masses 6:45 am and 9:00 am. Sunday Masses are as follows:  Saturday - 5:00 pm.  Sunday - 8:30 am, 10:00 am (Polish) and 11:30 am. Our Lower Church is open for private prayer Monday thru Saturday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.

All CDC and Diocese guidelines are to be followed. As you enter the church you will be asked to sanitize your hands and wear a face covering. You may only sit where you see the green tape on the pews. This enables us to have social distancing and 25% capacity.

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.
