A follow up to our sad robbery. 

God blesses those who give. 

Thank you.




We had a stranger in our church recently.   He acted inappropriately and, before leaving, he took guitars from our music ministry that we will now have to pay to replace. 


We welcome all to church, but if you see someone acting strange or moving things around who should not or going where they should not, please tell the office right away or call 911.

It is all our responsibility to protect Gods House.

We have called the police and we have him on video (see videos below).  If any of you know any info please let us know, and if you see him please call us or the police. 

As a result of this, we will be locking the bathroom area of the church after Mass and we will be locking the 188 St entrance after Mass. The ramp will remain open and we have activated a sensor so that every time the door opens the office is notified as to who is entering and leaving the church via our camera system.

Let's Keep Praying for our Young People


Two of our young men were highlighted recently at the Vocation Holy Hour with the Bishop.   Did you know that we have one young man in our High School Seminary?   #SGMHOLLIS   #yearofvocations



“Help our Parish and our Diocese in the Annual Catholic Appeal, Click the Link and don’t forget to write that you are a St Gerard Parishioner”


Message from the Pastor

God bless you all.  I want to welcome you to this website of our parish.  We are a Parish in Queens, part of the Diocese of Brooklyn.  We are one of four Diocesan Shrines in the Diocese.  We are dedicated to St. Gerard Majella because we were the first parish named after him in the United States.  We have his relics present in the church 24 hours a day.  We also have the relic of St. Gianna Mola and a 2nd class relic of Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGiviney (founder of the Knights of Columbus).  Our Church is open from 7:30am to 8pm everyday for prayer.

All are welcomed at the parish.  We especially welcome couples who are trying to have a baby, those who recently had a baby, those who are trying to adopt, and those who are having issues with conceiving a baby.  Every week we pray a perpetual novena to St. Gerard on their behalf.  Please feel free to surf our website, and know that we are praying for you.  If you can please drop us a line so we can connect to you and pray for you, via email, Facebook page, or Twitter Page.

God bless.
