Video Masses will continue to be offered for the foreseeable future while the church will be open for you to come to Mass.

Each weekend Masses will take place on Saturday at 5:00 PM, and on Sunday at 8:00 AM,  10:00 AM, and 12:00 noon.  The weekend schedule will continue to be evaluated to allow for everyone to be admitted to Mass.

We thank all our parents who are working so hard with their children at home as we navigate this unknown territory of having our entire religion program for the children take place at home instead of in-person classes. You are in our prayers and please call the Family Faith Formation Office if you have any questions (631 567-1765).

Joining the Ministry of Family Faith Formation-

This year we will not be asking for volunteers to be catechists.

Jesus taught us to love God and one another. Help spread the love by volunteering to help in this very rewarding ministry. We could use catechists (teachers), class aides, office volunteers, parking lot safety help on Mon. and Tuesday evening, high school students to tutor one on one etc. We provide catechetical ministry to families at the center, Monday and Tuesday we could use help any of those days.
Please call us at 567-1765. Thank You.

Family Faith Formation Business Hours-

We are presently open on Monday thru Thursday from 10-2 pm

Special Needs- if you have a child who has special needs and would like to register please let us know. Every child is eligible for his/her sacraments. This year we will do our best to personalize a program for your child. We are not having a weekly class due to the pandemic.

THIS IS UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES:

We offer a special needs class for any student who requires a special education placement. Our catechist is a certified Special Education Teacher who provides Sacramental Preparation as well as weekly Religious Education lessons for our students. Along with our catechist we have many assistants who are there to provide a loving, nurturing environment for our children. Levels 1 thru 8 are welcome. Please contact us and let us know if you have a child who has special needs. All children are welcome to receive his/her Sacraments and gain a foundation of the love of Jesus Christ.
