Despite the rain, one parish in the Diocese of Brooklyn had a sunny reason to celebrate this weekend.

Our Lady of Charity Church marked 120 years of spreading the faith in Bedford-Stuyvesant on Sunday, Oct. 8.

Diocese of Brooklyn Bishop Robert Brennan celebrated the anniversary Mass, which was full of music and dancing.

It was a decidedly different celebration compared to the parish’s first Mass back in 1903, when the church was a converted animal stable.

The present church was built in 1914.
