The Story of a Rare Parish

St. Cecilia's, Brooklyn, 1871-1930
  • By Agnes King
Product Description

Here, in these pages, first published in 1931, is the story of the first sixty years of St. Cecilia's parish in Brooklyn, NY. Under the stewardship of Msgr. Edward McGolrick (1857-1938), an impressive network of social support that touched practically every aspect of a parishioner's life was built: a maternity hospital, a day care center (the first of its kind in the country!), the largest Catholic parochial school building in America, a sports facility for her youth, housing for religious sisters and brothers, and charitable support for indigent burials. And of course, last but not least-in a borough filled with beautiful historic architecture-a church that is considered one of the most beautiful in all Brooklyn. It is a cathedral for the common man. Agnes King tells the story of a rare parish including its buildings, societies, pastors, and even the listings of early contributions. A delight and a keepsake for anyone hailing from St. Cecilia's parish, Brooklyn.
