Exit onto the SOUTH side of Queens Blvd, and walk down Continental Ave for 10 blocks; if you are going in the right direction, you will cross Austin St after one block, then pass under the LIRR train tracks. The cross streets are alphabetical; take a right on Kessell St. The church is on the right at the end of the block.
For dinner beforehand, there are plenty of restaurants on Austin St.
