From the Pastor
Not far from the tabernacle in which we reserve the Most Holy Eucharist in our Parish Church of St. Sebastian, is the precise geographic center of the five boroughs, which comprise the City of New York. What a metaphor for the role of the Church in the world – we are called to make Christ the center of our own lives and the lives of all women and men. At the center of New York City is Christ.
Welcome to the website of St. Sebastian Roman Catholic Church, located at the intersections of 58th Street, Roosevelt and Woodside Avenues. A busier street corner would be hard to imagine, as would a racially, ethnically, linguistically more diverse part of the city. This is as true a description of this thriving, Catholic parish as you could have; it is a tremendously busy parish whose population is wonderfully diverse.
Mass and the other sacraments are celebrated regularly in two languages and all major parish celebrations are multi-lingual. St. Sebastian is arguably the largest Catholic parish in the diocese of Brooklyn, with approximately 5,000 people in attendance at regular Sunday Masses. On major feasts, the number swells to more than 10,000. Many parishioners are recent immigrants but even the core parish represents those who have come to the United States from many countries throughout the world.
The parish school is among the best and healthiest in the Diocese and we have a wonderful School of Religion and parish Religious Education Program. Our Parish Center provides an excellent opportunity for physical exercise and augments our first-rate C.Y.O. Program.
If you would like to register in the parish and begin receiving contribution envelopes, please drop by the rectory and speak with one of the staff.
God Bless you and your family!
Sincerely in Jesus our
Rev. Monsignor Michael J. Hardiman
