Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
For adults seeking to enter the Catholic Church and for adult Catholics who have not completed their sacraments, the parish offers the RCIA program.
The RCIA is an acronym for “Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults” and is open to all adults at least eighteen years old. The program takes the individual through the stages of inquiry, acceptance, election and initiation. It combines catechesis, teaching the doctrines of the faith, with liturgical rites. During the Easter Vigil, the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Communion) are administered and the catechumen (or candidate) completes entry into the Church. At the final stage (“Mystagogia”), the individual reflects on the mysteries of the sacraments and grace. If you are interested, please contact Deacon Philip Mills at Ext. 29.
Please contact a priest or deacon at least six months prior to your wedding date and before finalizing reception plans. Couples will need to attend an approved program of marriage preparation. Contact the parish office at (631) 842-5211 or (631) 608-4780 for more information. Click here to print information about the PreCana Course and Registration (English).

In addition, each couple will be participating in the FOCCUS program with a facilitator prior to the date of the group session. This program includes taking an “inventory” of where you are as a couple by each of you answering a series of questions online. You will then meet with a facilitator to discuss any issues you may want to resolve. For more information, you can go to foccusinc.com or call the parish office to be put in touch with a facilitator.
The privilege of serving God’s people as a priest, permanent deacon, religious sister or brother is personally fulfilling and spiritually exciting. Anyone who feels they might be interested in the priesthood, diaconate or religious life should speak to a parish priest.
Anointing of the Sick
Anointing of the Sick is administered on the first Saturday of every month after the 8:00am Mass and Novena prayers. If you know you will be entering the hospital for elective surgery, it is appropriate and recommended to receive the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick before entering the hospital. Simply ask one of the parish priests to give you the sacrament before admission. In the case of any emergency, please call the Rectory at (631) 842-5211.
