Sheepshead Bay

Three cheers to Father Joseph Grimaldi. The Pastor at St. Mark’s Parish was recently named as the new parochial vicar for Brooklyn by Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio. The good padre said his farewell mass on Jan. 15, officiating at the 12:30 pm service with fellow priests Father Christopher Truczany and Father Andrew Dunyo. When all the Hosea’s were finished, Pastor Joe went outside and blessed the new Marian Prayer and Memorial Garden adjacent to the church on the Jerome Avenue on the St. Paul entrance side. Completion of the space marked the culmination of the 150th anniversary celebration of the parish. Thanks to the generosity and support of faithful parishioners, the garden is a beautiful space where all are welcome for quiet reflection and peaceful meditation.

Standing O is sorry to see Pastor Joe move on, but he’s left the parish in good care, passing over the ceremonial plate to Father Truczany, who will act as his successor as parish administrator. Standing O says “Welcome aboard.”

St. Mark’s Roman Catholic Church [Ocean Ave. at Avenue Z in Sheepshead Bay, (347) 274-0573].
