St. Gregory the Great, Crown Heights

In 2011, the parish of St. Gregory the Great was merged into St. Matthew's parish about a mile east, on Eastern Parkway near Utica Avenue. The decree states that the church of St. Gregory the Great will remain a worship site for St. Matthew's parish.
The cornerstone declares that this extraordinary church was built in 1915. This photo was taken on August 20, 2008. To the left is St. John's Place. At the right is Brooklyn Avenue, one-way southbound. Conveniently, the B45 bus on St. John's Place stops at this intersection, as does the southbound B43.
For the Mass schedule and contact information, please see the parish website, linked here.
A better photo and brief commentary may be found here on Andrew Cusack's blog.

  1. I grew up on Kingston Avenue & St. John's Place and went to St Gregory the Great School 1st grade to 5th grade and I would love to see more pics of inside that most beautiful church that they would say was a miniature St. Patrick's Cathedral....
