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.

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.
At this time we are offering confessions on Saturday afternoon from 4:00 pm until 4:45 pm. They will be heard in the garden of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Parishioners who wish to have confession at a different time should contact the Parish Office to schedule an appointment.

Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Since Monday, June 29, 2020, St. Adalbert’s Church is re-open for daily Masses. Weekend Masses begin today, July 4th. 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!
Today we celebrate 244th Birthday of our country. Let us pause and express our special thanks to our heavenly Father who has blessed us with freedom, love, peace and joy in this wonderful country. Happy 244th Independence Day America!
God Bless you all,
I regret to inform you that our parishioner Frank Filip died yesterday, July 3, 2020. Funeral Mass is scheduled for Wednesday, July 8 at 10:00 am at St. Adalbert Church. Visiting at Papavero Funeral Home on Tuesday, July 7, 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Please click on link: Frank Filip Memorial Fund
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.

Frank Filip Memorial Fund
Our Dad Frank Filip past away July 3rd, 2020. He was a member of the St. Adalbert's Parish Family for almost 50 years. His Faith in God lead him to being an Usher, Holy Name member, Alter Server, and served on many other parish committees.
But his love and dedication for his follow ushers and alter servers meant everything to our Dad. In lieu of flowers, we are setting up the Frank Filip Memorial Fund, this fund will help provide Ushers with jackets and Alter Servers with cassocks in his name. All donations would be great appreciated.
God Bless. Vinny and Greg
Please pray for the souls and their families of the ones who have gone to be with Our Lord

and all who have died due to the Corvid-19
Eternal rest grant unto them, o Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace. Amen.

Electronic giving is a simple tool that provides our parishioners the opportunity to support the parish in a way that is convenient and secure. Payments can be made using a bank account or credit card, scheduled in advance to occur on a recurring basis, or as individual one-time gifts.
