City of Churches

St. Mary Magdalene Parish in Springfield Gardens, Queens is full of history and strength. Although their church was the victim of a tragic fire that destroyed everything but one special item, out of the ashes rose a breathtaking, modern church, with echoes of the past. Anthony Mangano chats with Father Cosmas Nzeabalu and Sister Maryellen Kane to gain unique insights into the history of this parish.

Join us for a new episode of City of Churches on Wednesday’s at 8 PM!
