About us

For over 78 years, Chiarelli's Religious Goods has been serving the wants and needs of the religious community.

Established in 1938, Chiarelli's is a fourth generation family owned business that has served the religious community and public. Nicholas Chiarelli opened his first store in Brooklyn, New York. 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 includes servicing parishes in all the five boroughs, Long Island, Connecticut and New Jersey. Chiarelli’s expansion enabled us to start shipping packages all across the country. For over seven decades, Chiarelli’s has donated and given back to parishes and missionaries in need. We have built our reputation on family values, honesty and loyalty to our customers.

Currently, John Senior's son, John Michael Chiarelli, oversees the day to day operations at the New Hyde Park storefront. John Michael, now with his two sons Francis and John Anthony, has taken a hands on approach and is responsible for implementing the many innovative services that are being offered such as church renovations and restorations, custom statuary and memorial donor walls. There is no project too small or too large. Chiarelli’s can make all your visions for your parish a reality.

We understand the needs of our clients and the special treatment they deserve. We still strive to be your everyday retailer, making your shopping experience satisfying and fun. Our dedication is truly reflected in our work.

Chiarelli’s is an active member of the National Church Goods Association(NCGA). 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. Est. in 1907, the NCGA is one of the oldest practicing associations in existence.
