Court St. in Brooklyn became a boulevard of red, white and blue when the Long Island Chapter of the Knights of Columbus sponsored its 112th annual Independence Day Parade in Brooklyn on Saturday, June 24. The parade kicked off with a Mass celebrated at St. Paul’s Church, Boerum Hill, by Auxiliary Bishop Raymond Chappetto. The line of march proceeded to St. Mary Star of the Sea Church, Carroll Gardens, where refreshments were served.
