Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens officially renamed its Most Holy Trinity Single Room Occupancy (SRO) Apartments in Brooklyn to the John J. Farrell Residence. The dedication ceremony was held on Tuesday, May 19, 2015, and was attended by Mr. Farrell’s family and friends.


Our Queens Community Center held a huge Earth Day celebration on April 24 with nearly 100 children and families. The event included many arts and crafts and snack stations, and it was a way to come together and learn about the environment and our planet. 


Losing a loved one or nearing the end of life is difficult for anyone. Our Catholic Charities Bereavement Services offers various ways to ease the pain, including group talks, individual consultations, spiritual talks and prayer shawls.


The work of Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens would not be possible without the support of volunteers.
