Let us continue to pray in solidarity for our brothers and sisters here and around the world that are sick. Let us pray for those who have lost loved ones to this virus. May God console them and grant them peace. We pray also for doctors, nurses, and caregivers, for public health officials and all civic leaders. May God grant them courage and wisdom as they seek to respond to this emergency with compassion and in service to the common good.


Registration forms for the 2020/2021 Religious Education school year are on hold temporarily. As more information becomes available to us, we will proceed accordingly.




The new dates for First Holy Communion will be:

Saturday, September 12th, 2020 @ 12Noon Mass for Groups 1 & 2

Saturday, September 19th, 2020* @ 12Noon Mass for Groups 3 & 4


*As of today, we have checked the Lynbrook and East Rockaway school calendars for 2020/2021 and the schools are open on Friday September 18th, 2020 (Rosh Hashanah).  

If for some reason you are unable to attend your assigned date, please let us know ASAP and you can surely participate in the other date.  We will continue to keep you advised of additional instructions, etc as we go along over these next months. 

Assignments were forwarded home to each grade via e-mail.  Families are kindly asked to join FORMED which can be found on the parish website.  Instructions on how to register for FORMED were included in the e-mail as well.  The short videos that have been assigned to each grade are found in this platform.  In order to complete the 2019/2020 Religious Education school year, the students and their parents are asked to view the video together and to write a short paragraph about the video.  Each video assignment should be done on three separate sheets of paper. Please have the child write his/her name on the top of each sheet, their grade and the name of the video that they watched and write or type their thoughts about the video.  Please staple the three pages together so that assignments can be collected and attach them to your child’s 2020/2021 Religious Education Registration form.


4th of July is a day to rejoice, be proud and salute all those brave warriors who fought for the freedom of our country.  No amount of appreciation will be enough to describe their efforts.  Thank God for people such as these brave men and women.

Have a wonderful 4th of July.

Evelyn, Lucy and Nancy
