Diocese Statement on Reopening Churches

Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio is pleased to announce that the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens will slowly work toward opening the doors of Catholic Churches for private prayer and devotion as well as for funerals and limited celebrations of baptisms and weddings.

Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church will have its vestibule open each day for private prayer and devotion. You may enter the vestibule through the doors on Ascan Avenue. Please wear a mask, remain six feet apart, and bring your own hand sanitizer with you. You may also wear gloves. If you are not feeling well, please continue to pray in the privacy of your home.

For the celebration of funerals, baptisms, or weddings, please call the rectory at 718-268-6251 and be aware that we are still required to limit the number of people in attendance at those services to 10 persons. Thank you for your continued patience as we pray for a return to a new normal. May God continue to watch over you!  — Bishop Paul R. Sanchez
