Welcome to our Church

We extend a warm welcome to families and individuals who are new to our Parish. Please register at the Rectory so that we can be of service to you.

Our June food drive was a success and the St. Joseph’s food pantry was able to donate 400 food bags to the community. THANK YOU OLHC COMMUNITY!
The need is great during this time and we are asking for your assistance as food pantries across the Island are in need.

Dear Parishioners,

I have good news to share with you. As many of you already heard from reading in the Staten Island Advance, Our Lady Help of Christians Parish and Archdiocese of New York are about to finalize an agreement with AHRC NYC for them to open Staten Island Preparatory School in our school building to serve special needs students.

At 12pm on Sunday, June 14, 2020 we will have a Corpus Christi Car Procession, weather permitting, through the streets of Tottenville. We encourage all who are able to come out on their porch and greet the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. If any wish to join the car procession after the truck bearing the Eucharist, please be on Yetman Avenue near the Church by 12pm.

Dear Parishioners,

As you know, since March 15 2020, we have been unable to celebrate public Masses here at Our Lady Help of Christians, as has been the case throughout the Archdiocese of New York, in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The many food pantries on Staten Island are in need of replenishment as donations have been limited the past few months. The need is great during this time and we are asking for your assistance. 

Confessions will be made available this Saturday, May 30, from 1-2pm at the entrance of the school gym.   A six foot distance and the wearing of masks by priest and penitent will be maintained . In case of inclement weather, confessions will be moved inside the gym.  This time will repeat every week thereafter.

Weather permitting, this Sunday May 24, the actual date of the feast of Our Lady Help of Christians, between 12-1pm the statue of our Lady from the church will ride around the streets of Tottenville with a car procession and the recitation of the Holy Rosary. Since you can’t come to our Lady, she is coming to you.
