IMPORTANT NOTE: In November, 2015, this church is the place of assembly and worship of the Roman Catholic San Damiano Mission. (Please, this is not a cult in the pejorative sense of the word.) For further description from November, 2015, please see all the pages of the San Damiano Mission website.
Also, please see my other post about the mission.
This parish was established in 1905, and the cornerstone of the church above reads 1911. It seems that Slovak Franciscan Friars cared for the faithful here during the parish's early era.
When I took the above photo about 5:15 p.m. on a weekday in 2008, many cyclists seemed to be heading home on an established fast bike lane, unlike the worse traffic of parallel Manhattan Avenue. The church is on North 15th Street at Nassau Avenue.
In 2011, the bishop of Brooklyn merged this parish with the parish of St. Anthony of Padua, which earlier had absorbed the parish of St. Alphonsus. Since early 2015, it is San Damiano Mission.
