The Church of Our Lady of Solace is a Roman Catholic parish church under the authority of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, located at 731 Morris Park Avenue at the intersection with Holland Avenue, Bronx, New York City in the Van Nest neighborhood.[3]

History[edit]

The parish was established 1903.[4] The rectory address is 731 Morris Park Ave., Bronx, NY 10462.[1]

The present church was dedicated in 1929.[1] For many years, the Sisters of the Presentation staffed the parish school. Students from Our Lady of Solace parish attend St. Dominic's parish school.[1] The religious education program of both parishes is conducted in what appears to be a former parochial school building at the corner of Morris Park Avenue and Holland Avenue.[1]
