St. Joseph, Bathgate Avenue

Once again, David Gonzalez has written for the New York Times a magnificent article about Bronx Catholics.  Please see the link HERE.
---
He writes about St. Joseph's parish, Bathgate Avenue, which was merged with the parish of St. Simon Stock on August 1, 2015.  He writes of the parishioners, the Carmelite pastor, and the Mexican religious Sisters who help maintain contact with the Catholic Christians of the neighborhood.  Angel Franco has provided sharp, telling photographs.

Mr. Gonzalez does not mention the parish school across the street, apparently doing well.

In addition to reading the above article, please also look at my 2009 post:
