The Saint Adalbert Roman Catholic Church is a Roman Catholic church in Elmhurst, Queens, New York, located at 52-29 83rd Street, Elmhurst, New York 11373. It was founded in November 1892 primarily to serve immigrants from Poland who settled in the areas of Elmhurst, Maspeth and neighboring villages.
The first parishioners of the church were initially served by priests who are speakers of the Polish language and of priests of Polish descent since 1891. The first was Father Joseph Fyda. Father Fyda was succeeded by Reverend Monsignor Boleslaus Puchalski. Other priests who served the church included Reverend Doctor Adalbert Nawrocki and Monsignor Wiadyslaw Manka. The parish was transferred to the management of Franciscan Friars Minor Conventual in 1906. It still has staff who speak Polish despite of its diverse parishioners at present.
The church's current building structure was built in 1947.
