Under the Mantles of our Blessed Lady and her mother, Saint Ann, our Parish celebrates and honors a rich history of collaboration among the faithful priests, religious and dedicated laity.  Nourished by "The Power of the Most High," we strive to be vessels of Gospel values bringing a message of hope and hospitality to all we meet in our ethnically diverse neighborhood. 

Through the awareness of this mission, we seek to grow as disciples nourished by the Eucharist, accepting our call to bring forth Christ in our time, by leading lives dedicated to service and stewardship. 

We seek to become a more vibrant parish by responding to the needs of the community, spreading the message of Jesus through action and word and seeking to renew the faith of the active and non-active Catholics of the Parish.

A Note from The Sisters of Life


Dear Friends,

Greetings in Christ!

We are so grateful for your friendship and generous participation in our Christmas gift collections through your parishes each year. So many families benefit from your contributions! With all the challenges surrounding Covid-19 this year, we realize that many parishes are down in numbers and/or are foreseeing Covid-19 safety restrictions will make gift collections at parishes more difficult.

In light of these realities, we have created an Amazon Gift Registry that can be made available to your parishioners so they can pick out a gift from home and have it shipped directly to us if they think it would be easier to contribute that way.

Here is the link to the registry: www.sistersoflife.org/registry

The registry should be set up to ship the items directly to our apostolic center at St. Andrew's without needing to advertise our address, but just in case anyone is asking, the address the items need to come to is: 20 Cardinal Hayes Pl. NY, NY 10007. We will be distributing gifts to the families we serve primarily between Dec. 7-17 ("due date" of Dec. 14th), but any items received even after that date will still be put to good use as we give material goods to women and children all year long! We are also fine to receive the gifts "early" throughout the month of November, as they come in, so feel free to start sharing the word.

We are so grateful for your help and cooperation in making sure these heroic moms and their kids have a blessed Christmas! Know of our prayers for each of you as well!

-- In Christ, Sr. Amata Filia S.V. and Sr. Monica Marie, S.V.

Sisters of Life-Co Worker of Life Team 20 Cardinal Hayes Place; New York, NY 10007

Prayer to the Virgin Mary for Protection

O Mary, you always brighten our path as a sign of salvation and of hope.  We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith.
O loving Mother, you know what we need, and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee.  Intercede for us with your Son Jesus, the Divine Physician, for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable, and for those who have died.  Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.
Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows, so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection.  Under your protection we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

Peace Prayer of St. Francis

Peace Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
