Second Annual Disability Awareness Mass At St. Gertrude’s


People with and without disabilities are invited to attend the Second Annual Disability Awareness Mass, to be held at St. Gertrude’s Church, on Saturday, September 17 at 4 p.m.

The church and church hall are fully accessible, as are the restrooms. Two ramps to the church building allow access to those using a wheelchair or walker.

One of the ramps is located on Beach Channel Drive, and the other is around the corner on Beach 38 Street.

A reception in the church hall will follow the service.

This is the second such celebration in the Rockaways. People with disabilities will serve as lectors and presenters to celebrate the importance of people with disabilities in the life of the Church.

The event is the culmination of a collaborative effort with the Parish Advocates for People with Disabilities from eight churches in the Rockaways and Broad Channel.
