If you missed the Community Board #7 Meeting in May regarding the proposed Protected Bike Lane please take time to read the Proposal which is attached. We are asking community members to communicate with the Board your concerns or interest in the Bike Lane. Recognize that approximately 18+ parking spaces will be lost on Fort Hamilton Parkway as the plan also includes alteration to crosswalks.
Be sure your VOICE is HEARD before the June 19th Vote!

Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Gives Back! Immaculate Heart of Mary should share in the profits. For each car, truck or van, running or not the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul will give back to our church $50/ $100 per vehicle. Maybe you don’t have a vehicle, but a family member, friend or neighbor has an old or neglected vehicle in their driveway that they would like to dispose of. Call the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul at 718.491.2525. Thank You!
Are You Aware? It has been our experience at times that some people may feel they are not able to receive Communion due to divorce or other personal issues. Often times, there may be a misunderstanding regarding Church Teaching in these matters. You are encouraged to see Fr. Gill, S. Mary Ann, Deacons Jim, or John for clarity so that you do not miss the opportunity to celebrate the healing presence of Jesus in the Sacrament of Reconciliation and in turn come to the Table of the Lord.
“When I was hungry, you gave me to eat.” ( Mt. 25) Our pantry is in need of non-perishable items such as: cereals, peanut butter, jelly, canned vegetables, fruits, and soups, tuna fish, crackers, non-refrigerated milk (ex. Parmalat), etc. Our Parish pledged to #WalkwithFrancis—donating to the Food Pantry is a good way to walk.
