 Lord Jesus, I come before you just as I am. I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In your name I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give you my entire self. Lord Jesus, now and forever. I invite you into my life, Jesus. I accept you as my Lord, God and Savior. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul and spirit. Come, Lord Jesus, cover me with your precious blood, and fill me with your Holy Spirit. I Love You, Lord Jesus. I Praise You, Lord Jesus. I Thank You, Lord Jesus. I shall follow you every day of my life. Mary, my mother, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all you Angels and Saints, please help me. Amen --Imprimatur Francisco Maria Aguilera Gonzalez, Auxiliary Bishop of Mexico, September 8, 1992 c1993 Servite Fathers,O.S.M., Fr. Peter Mary Rookey, .O.S.M

The History of  of St. Benedict's Parish

The story begins…
In early 1923 the Diocesan Council of New York was asked by Archbishop Patrick Hayes to look into conditions in the newly developing section of the East Bronx.  Following the Council’s recommendation, on April 5, 1923 Archbishop Hayes sent a letter to the Very Rev. Father Bernard Kevenhoerster, O.S.B., Pastor of St. Anselm’s Parish in the Bronx, appointing him to “take charge of the entire section of land” consisting of Throggs Neck, Edgewater, and Silver Beach. The next day Prior Bernard toured the area and leased two vacant stores on Eastern Boulevard (now Bruckner Boulevard). On Saturday, April 7th, under the direction of Father Louis Traufler, O.S.B., an assistant at St. Anselm’s, the partition between the stores was torn down and the articles needed for Mass were transported from St. Anselm’s in a large moving van. By nightfall Father Louis, with the assistance of the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt from St. Anselm’s School and volunteers from the neighborhood, had everything ready for Sunday morning Mass.
