New Young Men’s Ministry

Next Meeting: Friday, February 4 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm in the All Purpose Room

This exciting new ministry is dedicated to helping young men and boys find the value of a life of service, to each other, to their community, and to God. We will do this by empowering and enabling these boys to form the ministry in a way that best reflects their talents, passions and strengths. We will encourage our boys to express themselves freely, in the ways they feel most comfortable to do so, in an environment that will provide them with safety, encouragement and motivation.

This ministry is open to all young men and boys from 6th grade to high school seniors. We welcome any adult male parent or guardian to stay and be part of the activities. We want to form a network for these boys and for our community that will serve them for a lifetime; one that they come back to repay. Your help is invaluable to that effort.

We will meet the first and third Friday of each month.

Per N.Y. State mandate, everyone is required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status.

For more information, please contact Robert Natale at 631-943-5962 or rnatale64@hotmail.com



Extended Hours of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Currently, we celebrate Nocturnal Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the first Saturday of the month, following the 5:00pm Mass.

The Blessed Sacrament will also be exposed every Tuesday from 12:30pm to 8:00pm in the Church except for the following Tuesdays when we have other events taking place in the church and adoration will be ending earlier:

Tuesday, Mar   1:    adoration ending at 6:30pm
Tuesday, Mar 22:   adoration ending at 7:00pm
Tuesday, Mar 29:   adoration ending at 7:00pm
Tuesday, Apr 12:    adoration ending at 7:00pm

All are welcome to come and adore the Lord in the Holy Eucharist. We want to make sure that we have at least 2 people always adoring the Lord in the Church so that He is never left alone. Feel free to stop by anytime on Tuesdays (12:30pm-8:00pm) to pray. If you have a specific time or hour you want to do adoration each week, please call Josephine at 631-214-9736 and inform her so that she can schedule you. This will ensure that we will definitely have someone covering that hour. Most people usually come at about the same time each week so, if that is the case, please call Josephine.
