St. Catharine of Alexandria, Boro Park


St. Catharine of Alexandria Church is at Fort Hamilton Parkway and 41st Street in Boro Park. The mailing address is 1119 41st Street, Brooklyn NY 11218, telephone 718-436-5917. Clicking on any photo will enlarge it (to read the Mass schedule, for example).

The Lourdes grotto, above, is shown in a photograph taken through a fence separating this garden from Fort Hamilton Parkway.

Across the street is the older of two parish school buildings. There is no longer a parish school.


In the above photo, the rectory can be seen on 41st Street, to the right.

In the above photo, looking east on 41st Street, is the newer former parish school, now used by two public high schools. Its cross is covered. The adjacent building is a convent, then the church across Fort Hamilton Parkway. A contemporary description of Boro Park is given on Wikipedia here.
