Every One Will Call Her Blessed... Unveiling the Queen of Angels Chasuble

IT'S THE FIRST OF ITS KIND -The unveiling of the new Chasuble for Queen of Angels was planned by parishioners to help inspire the Community to know Mary, who leads us to Christ. Once a year, the statue is brought out during the week of August 22nd. It was the Very Rev. Brian P. Dowd VF, who continues encourage his Lay Leadership to develop the Mission of the Parish from her name, and made sure the statue is seen during the whole month of May for the Crowning of Mary, and the month of August for the Feast of the Queenship of Mary. 

This statue is unique. The artist, Bishop Denning, wanted her to have angel wings. A mystery to the leadership, and historians from the Diocese, there is no written account for Bishop Denning to imagine Mary in this way. 

Inspired by this image, her name, history, and our Pastor's interpretation of our Mission, a group of donors had these two custom made chasubles produced - one for our Pastor, and one for our Parish. 

In a speech honoring the Very Rev. Dowd by Mr. Juan Rodriguez, he said,"[H]e has been the instrument in urging us to form and strengthen our Mission, by looking to her Name, and her Image, seen in the Parish and Rectory.  Fr. Brian has given us a deep love for Queen of Angels as our Patron Mother. Her Image and Name became our Refuge to Christ, and the center of our Mission to the people of Sunnyside."

Mr. Rodriguez ended the speech with these words for all present at the gathering, and for all parishioners, "May these vestments remind us, and our future parishioners of our Mission. A reminder…. That WE ARE QUEEN OF ANGELS."

We want to thank all of the donors, and Chiarelli's Church Supplies & Religious Goods for making this a reality. 

The Chasuble will be worn for the first time at the Vigil Saturday Mass on August 14th at the 5PM Mass

Here's what you need to know about Mass Intentions at Queen of Angels... Read more

MASS BOOK 2021-2022 : On Wednesday, September 8th, the Mass book for September 2021 to August 2022, will be open for intentions. An individual may ask to offer a Mass intention for several reasons: for example, in thanksgiving, for the intentions of another person living or deceased (such as on a birthday or anniversary), or, as is most common, for the repose of the soul of someone who has died. When we face the death of someone, even a person who is not Catholic, to have a Mass offered for the repose of his soul and to offer our prayers are more beneficial and comforting than any other sympathy card or bouquet of flowers. To have a Mass offered on the occasion of a birthday, anniversary or special need is appropriate, beneficial and appreciated. You many stop by the rectory during office hours to make these arrangements. The Stipend for each is as follows: Masses - $15; Bread & Wine - $25; Sanctuary Candles - $25; Altar Flowers - $50; Purgatorial Society - $25 Remember...#WeAreQ

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 Lili 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.
