Last weekend, a new Croatian center in Manhattan, New York City, opened and was blessed.

 

The Croatian centre is part of the Roman Catholic Church of Sts. Cyril & Methodius and St. Raphael in Manhattan, New York City.

Since the 1970s, the Church has been the home of a Croatian national parish, which provides services in both Croatian and English. Despite the fact that it has been a parish for almost a century.

It was formed by the union of two parishes: St. Raphael’s parish and the Croatian parish of St. Cyril and St. Methodius.

The parish, which is situated at 502 W 41st Street in Manhattan’s central business district, has become a significant hub of the Croatian community’s religious and cultural life in four states: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.
