The St. Stanislaus Kostka Roman Catholic Church is a Roman Catholic church in Maspeth, Queens, New York, whose parish was organized in 1872. Historically, it is one of only three churches in the area to have organized schools for its parishioners, known as the St. Stanislaus Kostka School. Its sister church is the Transfiguration Roman Catholic Church.[1]

History[edit]

One of the goals of building the church in 1872 was to provide a house of prayer and worship to local farmers living far away from St. Mary's Church that was located in the neighboring Winfield section of Woodside, Queens. Its original building was formerly located at 64-25 Perry Avenue in Maspeth, Queens. Its current pastor is Rev. Msgr. Joseph P. Calise
