About us

“This cup is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, as often as you drink it,
in remembrance of me”  

[1 Corinthians 11:23-25]

We are a people of diverse cultures, called to proclaim and live the gospel by worship, evangelization and fostering a community of service in vibrant Long Island City. 

We look forward to seeing you!

Most Precious Blood Church is a Roman Catholic Parish in the center of Astoria, NY. 

Our desire is to allow all those that enter our Church experience the loving presence of Christ in their lives. Our church is open every day from 7 am to 10:30 pm for all who desire a moment of intimacy with Christ. 

We hope you can join us to worship Christ around His altar, forming a community of disciples that follow him with Faith, Hope & Charity & enjoy a deep devotion to the Most Precious Blood of Christ.
