1, 1969 the church was inaugurated as a Basilica. One of only
15 basilicas in the U.S. compared to over 150 cathedrals. Only
a Pope can designate a church a basilica and when he does, that
church becomes, in a way, his church. The basilica has a glorious
dome portraying Christ the King in colorful splendor.
In addition to regular services, they have a center for the
aging and offer swimming lessons.

recently opened in Park Slope serving authentic Mexican cuisine.
The food here is filling yet not overwhelmingly spicy. Classic
Mexican fare is made with your choice of stewed or grilled meats.
Six bucks buys you a burrito the size of your head or a huge
platter with a taco, enchilada or chile relleno (a sort-of South
of the Border cheese and pepper omelet). It has earned the reputation
of being New Yorks first L.A.-style burrito place.
