  • About Our Parish

    Our Lady of Good Counsel is a parish church and school founded in 1898 by the Augustinian friars. The original building, which stands today as the school, was dedicated in 1899. Our current church was dedicated in 1968 and is famous for its architecture; the design took second prize in 1964’s Liturgical Week Architectural Exhibition in St. Louis, Missouri, received an Architectural Award of Merit from The Liturgical Arts Guild of Southern New Jersey, and tied for first place in the 7th Annual Building Competition sponsored by the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce.

     

    There are approximately 1500 families registered with the parish. Geographically we are located in Tompkinsville, but our community spans a broad spectrum of social, ethnic, and economic strata, representative of the population of Staten Island’s North Shore, with outreach and support programs that impact both the Island as a whole and off-Island as well.

  • Loss & Grief Support Group

  • From Our Pastor

    My dear Parishioners,

    In this trying moment in our world, Church, family and community, I hope you are persevering in faith, hope and prayer. I am writing once again to thank all of you who have returned their weekly steward envelopes and those who use the on line giving. 
    Your love and assistance will truly be keeping Our Lady of Good Counsel afloat until we are out of this Coronavirus crisis.

    Let me encourage you with the words of St. Paul to the Philippians: “Finally, brethren, whatever is true,  whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things” (Philippians 4: 8).

     May God guide and bless us. Amen.  

    Fr. Ambrose
