One Hundred Years
of Service to the People
of the Upper West Side 

"This is a nice, first floor church with a school ... atop it.  [You] find a wonderful mural of many saints on the wall behind the altar. The singing of the choir was enchanting.... I sat near the stained glass on the right side of the building, occasionally looking up at The Last Supper .... 

I felt better at this church than I have at any of these churches in a long time. Perhaps it was the prospect of some new life I see before me.  Because we bless ourselves with holy water ... celebrate the Eucharist and go through Jesus' life and resurrection -- isn't that the way? --to leave Mass every week ... with a prospect of new life."

"Congratulations on reaching this website. I hope this will be just the first of many encounters that you have with our wonderful parish. 
As a microcosm of the Body of Christ, we have an inclusive and diverse group of people who truly love God, and each other. 

Monsignor Michael Crimmins, Parochial Vicar

"I've been attending Mass here for over a year, and they made me feel welcome from day one. 
It's about as progressive as a Catholic church can be, and ... I love it."
