A life-size statue of St. Joseph holding Jesus stands in the center of the basilica’s new Saint Joseph Chapel and Columbarium at Regina Pacis Basilica, Bensonhurst.

Standing in front of the altar where they celebrated the sacrament of marriage, NYPD officer Richard Joseph Galletta and his wife Lisa took a moment to reflect on the saint after whom he was named.

The two prayed together at the St. Joseph statue at Regina Pacis Basilica, Bensonhurst, on the Feast of St. Joseph, March 19, which was also Officer Galletta’s birthday.
