It Was A Dreamer Who Thought It Up... Using QR Coding at the Church

The Dreamers Club Youth Group - part of Queen of Angels Youth Ministry - has always pushed our young people to think inside and outside the box. Our Motto is always to "Be A Dreamer"... 

Imagine coming to Church for Mass, or for prayer before the Tabernacle or Sanctuary, and you find no Missalette, a Prayer Book, or a Bible. That's exactly what has happened to many Catholic Church in New York City - it left us with a sense of doubt. In a conversation with Amanda Dos Santos, and Liliana Rodriguez, we discussed some of the ways we could promote these materials during Covid. It was Liliana who suggested to using clear projector paper, and print the QR Codes. All we had to do was direct parishioners in using the QR Codes before, during, and after the Mass. Parishioners would have the option of choosing English or Spanish.\You can find the Readings of the Mass, how to follow and respond at Mass and Holy Hour, How to pray the Rosary, and the Miraculous Medal Novena. We plan on adding more resources as these prayer aids can be a tremendous benefit for our Community. 

NetNY - Diocese of Brooklyn’s Catholic Network, did a very short report on Queen of Angels Church on the use of QR Codes. Feel free to share it with your parish leadership.

HERE IS THE CLIP FROM CURRENTS on YOUTUBE

With Gratitude...

On Sunday, June 21st, Fr. Dowd announced to the public during Sunday Mass that Msgr Jonas Achacoso will be leaving Queen of Angels Parish for his new assignment as the Pastor of Corpus Christi in Woodside NY. We are proud of this announcement. We wish Msgr. Achacoso our prayers, and support.

Msgr. Achacoso wrote to the Parishioners in this weeks Bulletin:

"'Swift fly the years' in the words of a poet. At the end of my ministry in Queen of Angels, I thank everyone who has made those years fly so quickly because I was truly having fun as I enjoyed so much kindness, generosity and friendship with the parishioners. I started coming to this parish from the summers of 2007 to 2013. Then I was as part-time parochial vicar from 2014 to 2020. So, it’s a total of 14 years of my life from which I treasure so many happy memories. Queen of Angels and Sunnyside has been and will be a home for me. I ask your prayers as I respond to the call of service to Corpus Christi – Woodside effecti…
