Our Lady of Miracles, Canarsie

The mailing address of the parish of Our Lady of Miracles is 757 East 86th Street, Brooklyn NY 11236, telephone 718-257-2400. Above is the sign and devotional statue on the north side of Flatlands Avenue at East 86th Street.

Any photo may be enlarged by clicking on it. This photo was taken January 20, 2010. The parish bulletin reported an attendance of 679 worshipers at the four Masses on the feast of the Baptism of Our Lord.


It would appear that the former convent on East 87th Street is the New York State headquarters of the Pro Sanctity Movement.  How three parish schools took the name Our Lady of Trust when they were merged seems to arise from the Pro Sanctity Movement based here. In Italian, Our Lady's title is la Madonna della Fiducia, patroness of a Roman seminary. Our Lady of Trust Catholic Academy is now at St. Jude parish.
