Because of their concern for the less fortunate and what their assistance could mean to those in need in our Diocese, two concerned gentlemen – Mr. William Debany and Mr. William Scalzo – founded the Bishop’s Coat of Arms Club in 1972. All proceeds from the Club’s membership activities are used to further Catholic Charities’ mission. Although we were unable to host the Bishop’s Coat of Arms Mass and Bunch for 2021, we are pleased to invite you to a special Coat of Arms Mass of Remembrance celebrated by Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio. Ph.D., D.D.
At the Mass, we will honor the members who left us too soon:
Ms. Geraldine Chapey, Mr. Thomas A. DeStefano, Mr. Edward Dougherty, Mr. Joseph Farrell, Mr. Robert Charles Golden, Mr. Richard Lagnese, Mr. William Spieth, and Mr. John A Loconsolo.
The Mass will take place on Saturday, May 1st, 2021 at 9:30 AM at the St. Charles Borromeo Church located at 19 Sidney Place, Downtown Brooklyn, NY 11201. The Mass will be aired virtually on our website at www.ccbq.org.
