Angels Unaware / Tree Lighting

Ever since the Diocese of Brooklyn was founded in 1853, it has been a Diocese for immigrants. To commemorate this, our Diocese was grateful to receive and display “Angels Unawares,” a sculpture by Tim Schmalz from December 8th until January 3rd. This correlated with our annual Christmas Tree Lighting, and they debuted together at Grand Army Plaza on December 8th. In addition to sharing this event virtually, we encouraged people to safely visit and share their immigrant story online with us on Facebook.
