About Us

Celebrating 85 Years of Quality, Reliability, and Reputation!



Nicholas Chiarelli opened his first store in Brooklyn, New York in 1938. What started out as a barber shop and stamp trading store soon became a place where you could also purchase rosary beads and religious statues. Nicholas’ son, John, then joined his father and expanded the business into the largest and most respected ecclesiastic religious goods store and showroom on the East Coast.

Our original storefront business in Brooklyn has expanded into a beautiful showroom now located in New Hyde Park. This expansion allows us to service parishes in all the five boroughs, Long Island, Connecticut and New Jersey, as well as to start shipping packages all across the country.



Chiarelli’s is an active member of the National Church Goods Association. The NCGA provides a forum for its members, dealers and suppliers of church goods, religious articles and published materials to effectively, ethically, and creatively serve the institutional retail markets. Established in 1907, the NCGA is one of the oldest practicing associations in existence.

At Chiarelli's we seek to provide the highest quality products at the very best prices. Our competitively-priced products are also backed by our Chiarelli's Satisfaction Guarantee, that "if for any reason you are not completely satisfied, we will arrange a credit, replacement, or refund."

However, our greatest pride is delivering customer satisfaction. Our staff is always friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. All employees are extremely dedicated to their positions, and are ready to answer your questions or assist you with your orders. We also provide innovative and personalized services such as church renovations and restorations, custom statuary and memorial donor walls, votive candle stands, and custom engravings. There is no project too small or too large - Chiarelli’s can make all your visions for your parish a reality.
