Now is a time for prayer!
We face unprecedented and unsettling times as the news regarding COVID-19 changes, seemingly by the minute. What remains steadfast is God’s love for us and how it shines through as we are there for each other with acts of kindness and love. The good in our hearts always prevails and the challenges we face across our globe will draw us closer to each other and to the Lord.
We are saddened by the drastic effects of this pandemic on our Brooklyn and Queens Catholic community, especially the suspension of Mass. We will pray often for your intentions. You may click on the link below to leave a special intention at any time: Cfbq.org/Intentions.
If you or a family member need pastoral care, please do not hesitate to reach out to your local pastor for assistance. If you are elderly or know of an elderly person, please let your pastor know and he can call to check in. If you would like to connect with our office staff, please call (718) 965-7375 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Since our staff is working remotely, we ask that you please leave a message and you will receive an immediate call back during business hours.
As faithful donors, whether it be to the Annual Catholic Appeal, Catholic Foundation for Brooklyn and Queens programs or Futures in Education scholarships, we know how committed you are to the mission of the Catholic Church. Our responsibility is to continue to fund and support that mission, even through these challenging times.
As we continue to ascertain the urgent needs within our Diocese, we will keep you informed. At this time of the suspension of Masses, is a way to continue your stewardship is through e-giving for your parish’s weekly offertory – if you are in a position to help. You may also consider supporting the Annual Catholic Appeal and sponsoring a student in our Angel scholarship program.
In these uncertain times, let’s help make the certain love God has for us shine through by loving and supporting each other in our Brooklyn and Queens Catholic Families. God bless you.
Please remember me in your prayers – I will remember you in mine. If you need me for any reason, please call the office staff. They will let me know immediately.
Sincerely in Christ,
Monsignor Jamie J. Gigantiello
Vicar for Development
