Testimonials

  • "I can say truthfully that the Lord has blessed my life

    with many gifts of the Spirit. Many of these gifts have come in the form of the wonderful people in the great Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens. Through your prayers and financial support you have truly assisted me and my brother seminarians in our formation.”

    Reverend Robert Mema, Parochial Vicar, St. Kevin Church, Flushing

  • "It’s very nice to have a Chaplain with you

    in the hospital, to come to your bedside when you are not feeling well. It shows that someone cares and connects with the spiritual part of you as you sit in a new environment with doctor and nurses coming in and out.”

    Patient at Flushing Hospital, with Fr. Bryan Carney, Chaplain

  • "When I moved here from Panama in 2012,

    I was afraid to speak to others. Working in a daycare helped me get rid of my fear. I was lucky enough to participate in other programs offered by Catholic Charities, and those have led me to pursue a career as a social worker.”

    Mrs. Onid McCray-Peterkins, Summer Youth Employment Program participant, Catholic Charities of Brooklyn and Queens
