St. Rose of Lima, Parkville

The rectory address for St. Rose of Lima parish is 269 Parkville Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11230, telephone 718-434-8040.  On Sundays, there are Masses in English, Spanish, Polish, Urdu, and at times in the Filipino language. Please see the bulletin page on the parish website.

The above view looks west on residential Parkville Avenue from East 8th Street towards Ocean Parkway. To the left of the church is new construction at a for-profit charter school which purchased or leased the parish school.  The construction is where the statue of St. Rose was in this 2006 photo on Flickr.  The statue, bearing the inscription in my photo above, is now to the front left of the church.  I remark how useful it is when people, as Betty Blake, use Flickr or other sites to post photos of their own neighborhoods.

View from Newkirk Avenue.  The cornerstone of the school reads 1892 and 1913.  Both church and former school extend  from Newkirk Avenue to Parkville Avenue.  The banner reads "Brooklyn Dreams Charter School, National Heritage Academies."
