Confessions
Every Saturday, 3:30-4:30 p.m., or by appointment at the rectory.

Baptisms
Baptisms are held once a month on Saturdays at 12:30 p.m.  Parents are expected to attend two preparation sessions prior to the Baptism.  Please bring the child’s birth certificate when you come to meet with a priest or deacon to register your child for Baptism. We can baptize children from infancy up to and including 7 years old. When a child has reached his or her eighth birthday the child needs to participate in faith formation in order to be baptized. Contact the Rectory at (718) 341-1018  for more information.

Arrangements should be made with the parish priest at least six months in advance. Pleas call the rectory at  (718) 341-1018 to meet with a priest or deacon.
