Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio recently hosted a special Mass of Thanksgiving and a celebratory brunch for members of the Bishop’s Coat of Arms Club.
A celebration of the Eucharist was held at St. Joseph’s College followed by a ceremony, at the Bishop’s residence, where the new members were welcomed and presented with a beautiful plaque inscribed with the Coat of Arms emblem. Bishop DiMarzio and Robert Siebel, CEO, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens expressed their appreciation to the Coat of Arms members for their generous support of the work of Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens. Founded in 1972, the Coat of Arms was created to help address poverty and provide help to those in need in Brooklyn and Queens. The proceeds from the Club’s activities help support the nearly 180 programs and services at Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens.
