Peace and Welcome to Our Lady of the Angelus Church! 
 
What a joy it is to introduce you to our church! You'll discover that our passion is to provide a place where people just like you can have a life-changing experience with God.

At Our Lady of the Angelus Church, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. We are a life-giving, multicultural  Roman Catholic church in Rego Park, New York and our goal is to infuse life and God's love into people and families through engaging, powerful worship services that offer biblical truth in relevant and practical ways.

Together, we're striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there's relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. We would like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community, one life at a time. If you are a Christ-follower who wants to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you can find a home here at Our lady of the Angelus Church. We invite you to visit one of our Services and participate in our Parish activities.

In the meantime, you'll learn more about Our lady of the Angelus Church and how to get connected by visiting our online resources.

Enjoy, and please contact us if you have any questions.

Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord
 
     
 
THE ATTITUDE OF CHRIST JESUS
 
The Lenten cycle brings us to this “mixed” Sunday of palm branches and painful suffering. Our liturgy opens by recalling Jesus’ triumphant entry along the main road into Jerusalem, then moves quickly to the back streets of betrayal and humiliation, the courtyards of torture and abandonment, the hill of execution. Isaiah’s strange and gripping “Song of the Servant of God” was to become the song of Jesus. It is the song of one who strides forward consistently in the face of criticism, even scorn: “I have not rebelled, have not turned back.” It is to become our song, as faithful followers of Jesus Christ. How are we to react when we hear the account of the passion and death of the Lord? Paul tells us that our attitude must be Christ’s, who “emptied himself, taking the form of a slave.” We pray that we may absorb the attitude of Christ, and face life squarely in its triumph and its pain.
