Count your blessings, there’s a new pastor at Sacred Hearts and St. Stephen Church, the borough’s oldest Italian parish.
At an installation on Feb. 24, the Rev. Msgr. Guy Massie donned his cassock and concelebrated his installation mass with Bishop Frank Caggiano, vicar general of the Diocese of Brooklyn; Rev. Msgr. Joseph Grimaldi, Episcopal vicar of Brooklyn; and Rev. Fr. Antonio Camora, parochial vicar of Sacred Heart. Msgr. Guy has been the Parish Administrator at the church since June of 2012, and is the first monsignor to be appointed there in 15 years.
Assemblywoman Joan Millman, (D–Cobble Hill), Borough President Markowitz, Rep. Brad Lander, (D–Cobble Hill), and John Heyer, pastoral associate, helped cut the cake at the post-mass reception.
Our pal Msgr. Guy is also the chairperson for the Ecumenical and Inter-Faith Commission of the Roman Catholic Diocese of the borough, as well as its vicar. Before coming to Sacred Hearts, he served at St. Brendan’s, St. Patrick’s, Our Lady Help of Christians, and the Parish of St. Andrew the Apostle.
The borough son also received his master’s degree in Judaic Studies at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, and the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception in Huntington.
Standing O wishes Msgr. Guy a long and happy reign.
