New York City (Brooklyn) Saints Cyril & Methodius Church


About Saints Cyril & Methodius Church:

Built in 1917, this Parish church became the spiritual center for thousands of Polish immigrants coming to the U.S.A. in search of a better life.  In fact, on its very first Sunday, Mass attendance was over 1600 people in a church with seating for only 600.

A school was opened in 1920, and survived the Great Depression of the 1930’s, where the school was kept open even to those who could no longer afford to pay.

Another influx of Polish immigrants in the 1970’s and 80’s brought new members to the community.  In 1996, Bishop Thomas V. Daily gave the parish over to the care of the Vincentian Fathers of the New England Province of the Congregation of the Mission. Father Joseph Mietelski, C.M., was the first Vincentian Father to serve as pastor.

The Vincentians took on the pastoral care of not just the parish but also of the three-year-old Saturday School.
