Our 115th Anniversary Dinner Dance

Gargiulo’s Restaurant - Friday, April 24, 2015 at 7:00pm

This summer of 2015, Our Lady of Solace will undergo a grand renovation. As you know, memories are an important part of our lives. Much of our life history is embedded within these church walls. Let us think back and recall the first time you walked in our church. What sacraments did you or your family receive here? Did you or your parents get married here? Do you remember fidgeting in the pews as a child or falling asleep on your parent’s lap? Or in sadder times, did you perhaps attend the funeral of a family member or friend?

Our Lady of Solace has enveloped and nurtured us in the traditions and Sacraments of the Catholic Church. This year she steps into the 115th year since her establishment. At the parish’s first Mass in an old dance hall, an old refrigerator laid on its side was used as an altar. Many years of sweat, hard work and dedication have been poured into the magnificent church building completed in 1925, exactly 90 years ago. Over the years, time and natural causes have deteriorated our church floor. Superstorm Sandy, in particular, took its toll on our church. This year of the renovation is going to be a momentous year for Our Lady of Solace parish.  There is a lot to be accomplished. This project’s fundamental work entails the following: 1) Rebuilding the entire church floor; and 2) Refurbishing the pews and providing them with new kneelers. To fulfill these demands we need funding. Various fundraising programs have already begun and we are making sure to keep you informed.

We invite you to support our parish project by celebrating our 115th Anniversary Dinner Dance with us at Gargiulo’s Restaurant (2911 West 15th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11224) on Friday, April 24th at 7 PM.  Come and meet join current and former and current parishioners, former classmates, teachers and pastors as well as our current pastoral staff. As of Saturday, April 11th, journal ads are no longer being accepted, but whether or not your are able to attend, please consider underwriting the event through your sponsorship. Your contribution will be noted in the Journal.  A Reservation/Underwriting form is available to be filled out and printed by clicking either HERE or the link above and to the right.

Thank you for your support and we hope to see you at the Dinner Dance!
