First Reconciliation


Our Second Graders will receive the sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time on Saturday, March 18 at 12PM. The students have been preparing through prayer and practice with their teachers. We are very much looking forward to celebrating this wonderful occasion with the students and their families. 






Daily Mass is offered at 9:00 A. M. every weekday. On Saturdays, there is a 9:00 A.M. Mass and also a 5:00 P.M. Vigil Mass for Sunday.  


Our Sunday Mass schedule is 9:00 A.M., 10:30 A.M. and 12:00 P.M.  


The Sacrament of Penance is celebrated every Saturday from 4:15 P.M. to 4:45 P.M. in the Church.  


Additionally, the Brooklyn (and Queens) Diocese, the Rockville Centre Diocese (Nassau and Suffolk Counties) and the Archdiocese of New York (Manhattan, Staten Island and six upstate Counties) will sponsor a Monday of Reconciliation at a date yet to be announced.  


Stations of the Cross will be celebrated each Wednesday of Lent at 7:30 P.M. in the Church.


On every Thursday evening of Lent, Deacon Dean will expose The Blessed Sacrament for quiet prayer and meditation from 7:30 to 8:30 P.M.  


Monsignor McGuirl would like to offer Bishop Robert Baron’s excellent and inspiring CD series, “The Pivotal Players, on the Monday evenings of Lent at 7:30 P.M. in the Church Hall.   This program is an expansion of Bishop Barron’s masterpiece presentation “Catholicism”.  Now the Bishop explores the lives of six people who he feels made major contributions to our Faith tradition: Francis of Assisi, Thomas Aquinas, Catherine of Siena, Leonardo DaVinci, John Henry Cardinal Newman and C.K. Chesterton.  If you would like to upgrade your Faith, even explore it more deeply, or learn more about these pivotal thinkers please join us.  See details on p.4 of the Bulletin.  All are welcome!
