As we continue to exercise an abundance of caution during this heightened time of Corona virus, to promote the health and safety of everyone (clergy included), the Diocese of Rockville Centre announced that Confessions will be suspended at least through Tuesday, April 14.


All are welcome to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation and experience the forgiving love of God!

Each week the sacrament is celebrated before the 5:00 p.m. mass, Saturday, 4:00 – 4:45 p.m.  There are two reconciliation rooms on either side of the Blessed Sacrament Chapel on the far side of the church as you enter from the gathering area.  In both reconciliation rooms there is a choice to celebrate the sacrament face-to-face, or to kneel behind the screen and celebrate anonymously.

Please check the bulletin for special celebrations of the sacrament throughout the year.  For example, we celebrate during Lent with the families of the parish on weekdays, and usually during the annual Lenten Parish Mission.

Should you wish to celebrate at another time, you are welcome to contact the parish (271-4455) or email the Center in order to make an appointment with the priest.
