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"
Due to the Coronavirus all Masses are cancelled. Please continue to visit our website for updates. If you have any questions you may call the parish office at 718-639-0212.

During the Corvid-19 crisis, Bishop DiMarzio has directed that confessions should not be heard in the ordinary enclosed confessionals in order to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus.
During this time, we will offer confessions. On Saturday afternoon from 4:00 pm until 4:45 pm. Confessions will be heard in the garden of the Blessed Virgin Mary (check the weather forecast) Parishioners who wish to have confession at a different time should contact the Parish Office to schedule an appointment.
The maintenance of the church does not end when Masses are suspended. In fact, the needs are often greater during these times.
Please remember your tithes and offerings to the church during this time. Please consider setting up online giving. It’s easy ! Just go to the link on the right side. St. Adalbert Church Electronic Giving through Give Central. You May also mail in your offering envelopes to the Parish Office. Thank you in advance for your continued support to our Church!
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.

May they rest in peace. Amen.
The Sunday offertory is critical to the vitality of our parish. Not just to pay the bills that continue to accrue, but to sustain the life-giving works carried out each day by our dedicated personnel, devoted clergy, and faithful lay leaders.
Electronic giving is a simple tool that provides our parishioners the opportunity to support the parish in a way that is convenient and secure.
