Our Parish Mission Statement

Since 1900, the Shrine Church of Our Lady of Solace has been the only Catholic Faith Community in Coney Island. We are committed to welcoming all of God’s people who come to live on or visit our shores.

We are a Eucharistic community proclaiming in Word and Sacrament, the Death and Resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

In union with Christ and relying on the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we seek to understand and respond to the spiritual, educational and social needs of our diverse community.

OUR CHURCH IS CLOSED FOR A MAJOR RENOVATION!

Sunday, May 10, 2015 was the last day of Masses to be celebrated in the church building until mid-September. As the Sunday Masses have been moved to the auditorium, and funerals, weddings and quniceañeras are being moved to Guardian Angel and Most Precious Blood Churches as well, the church is undergoing a grand renovation starting with the removal of the pews for a makeover being refinished, repaired where necessary, and given brand new kneelers. The floor and foundation were badly cracked in 1989 when the original bell tower was in danger of collapse and pushed against the building. Underground streams further exacerbated the problem, and they were further damaged by Superstorm Sandy in 2012. The entire floor will be removed and replaced with a brand-new steel-reinforced concrete and tile floor.  In restoring the sanctuary, the ciborium and original main altar will be reset, polished and cleaned. A new main altar will be on a newly-raised floor level and the current pulpit lecturn will be replaced. New lighting will be installed and the brick walls completely cleaned of decades of grime and efflorescence.

Please join us in this massive undertaking by sponsoring a pew. A small plaque will be affixed to each pew sponsored and your sponsorship may be either direct sponsorship or as a memorial. Most importantly, you and your loved ones will be a part of this historic church building and a loving and grateful parish family.  A sponsorship form is available by clicking the link below. Thank you for your consideration and generosity!
