It was a special anniversary for the parish at Our Lady of Cenacle Church in Richmond Hill, Queens. Brooklyn Bishop Robert Brennan joined parishioners on Pentecost Sunday to celebrate their 100th anniversary. He highlighted the parish’s culturally rich and diverse community – calling it a testament of the Holy Spirit.

The Queens church has been serving the Jamaica-Queens neighborhood since 1922 and was originally carved out of the neighboring church – Holy Child Jesus Catholic Church.

To top off the festivities, the 1972 graduating class from Our Lady of the Cenacle’s former school celebrated their 50th anniversary – many of whom continue to play active roles in the church.
