History


The parish was established in 1928. The original structure was a combined school-over-church, common to the city.[1] Construction of the Major Deegan Expressway caused the church to moved to its present site in 1951.[4] Both church and school were completed 1953 as Modernist brick and reinforced concrete structures.[1][5] Cardinal Spellman dedicated the parish school building, which was completed in 1953 at a cost of $200,000.[3] The rectory address is 160 Van Cortlandt Park South, Bronx NY 10463.[2]

The parish school is at 171 West 239th Street, Bronx NY 10463.[2]

On November 2, 2014 the parish was merged with that of Church of St. John,[6] and on June 30, 2017, the church was deconsecrated.[7]
