Diocese of Brooklyn Announcement on the Resumption of Weekday & Sunday Masses

The Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn, is pleased to announce that churches in the Diocese of Brooklyn can re-open for Weekday Mass on Monday, June 29, 2020. At  St. Charles Borromeo, we will celebrate public Mass on Wednesdays at 12:10 PM beginning on July 1, 2020 and a public Sunday Mass at 11:15 AM beginning on Sunday, July 5, 2020. COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place, including the requirement that all who enter a church must bring and must wear their own mask during the entire Mass and maintain proper social distancing.

“Catholics in Brooklyn and Queens have been longing for the celebration of Mass and to receive the Holy Eucharist. But our sacrifice and patience have borne fruit, and we did our part to flatten the curve of the terrible coronavirus pandemic. Soon we can come together to be nourished by the spiritual food we have been desperate for,” said Bishop DiMarzio.

In preparation for the joyous day when Mass will resume, the Diocese of Brooklyn is launching a video today in English, which can be viewed above, and Spanish to give Catholics in Brooklyn and Queens an understanding of the changes they will experience as a result of COVID-19 safety protocols designed to keep everyone healthy and safe. Below is a sunmary of the safety protocols: Continue reading “Diocese of Brooklyn Announcement on the Resumption of Weekday & Sunday Masses”

Donate to Support Catholic Charities Food Banks

Tomorrow, May 5, is Giving Tuesday at Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens.

Gifts made on May 5 to Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens will be matched up to $400K.

In the past 3 ½ weeks, Catholic Charities has distributed over 40,000 meals worth of food in Corona and Elmhurst Queens and East New York, Brooklyn, which have been the hardest-hit communities during this crisis. Families there are in dire need of essentials. Moreover, Catholic Charities has seen a 100% percent increase in demand for food at our existing food pantries throughout Brooklyn and Queens.

St. Charles Borromeo continues to support Catholic Charities in its important ministry and we will be making a contribution to Catholic Charities tomorrow. Please join us by contributing through our website.
