St. Dominic, Bensonhurst

The church of St. Dominic is located on the east side of 20th Avenue between 74th Street and Bay Ridge Parkway, Bensonhurst.  The mailing address is 2001 Bay Ridge Parkway, Brooklyn NY 11204, telephone 718-259-4636. 

The church seating appears to be L-shaped.

The church foyer includes these devotional votive statues, with more to the left of this view, and another room of shrines.
Established in 1972, this is the newest "fresh" parish in Kings County.  In 2010 and 2011, "new" parishes have been canonically erected on paper from closed or merged parishes, using some of the previous churches.

Above is the rectory at 2001 Bay Ridge Parkway, with a Fatima shrine and Padre Pio on the lawn. Any photo may be enlarged by clicking on it.

Adjacent to the rectory, Blessed Angelo Roncalli (John XXIII) enjoys the fresh air and the passers-by.
