Palm Sunday 2020

Unfortunately we will not be able to distribute Palms this Palm Sunday. Distributing them could create a gathering of people. Leaving them out could lead to infected palms being taken home.

This year let’s focus on God’s passionate love for us poured out in the death and resurrection of Jesus. Also, there is no Easter Sunrise mass at Ronkonkoma Beach.  I called the town of Islip and cancelled the permit.  The gates will be locked!

Let’s continue to pray for each other!
–   Fr Mike

Desafortunadamente, no podemos distribuir ramos este Domingo de Ramos. Distribuirlos podría crear una reunión de personas. Dejarlos afuera podría llevar a que los ramos infectados se lleven a casa. Este año enfocamos en el amor apasionado de Dios por nosotros derramado en la muerte y resurrección de Jesús.

Además, no hay misa de Pascua al amanecer en la playa de Ronkonkoma. Yo llamé a la ciudad de Islip y cancelé el permiso por esta celebración.

¡Las puertas estarán cerradas!

The Stations of the Cross

Friends, I invite you to reflect with me on the Stations of the Cross this Lenten season. To view the full Stations of the Cross video with all 14 reflections, visit stations.wordonfire.org/reflections.

March 16, 2020 – 3:00 pm
Lent just got really challenging!

Beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 at 3:00 PM, all Masses (weekday and weekend), liturgies, devotions, meetings, and non-essential activities in our parishes are suspended or postponed through Tuesday, April 14, 2020. This will include all Holy Week and Easter Liturgies. However, these will be televised and available online.

Mass intentions will be fulfilled by our priests celebrating private masses.

Reconciliation Monday (Monday of Holy Week) is also cancelled.

Our Parish Office is closed until further notice.  You may leave a message by phone at (631) 588-8456.  Please understand that calls will be returned according to priority when we are able to do so.  You may also e-mail info@stjoronk.org  E-mail responses will be handled according to priority by remote staff.

As we are asked to do “Social Isolation” to stop the spread of Corona Virus, we ask everyone to practice “Spiritual Unity” by making a point of praying (wherever you are) for 5 minutes at 8:00 AM, Noon, and 6:00 PM every day!

We plan to post Word Services on our Website and Social Media sites so that we can together be fed by God.

Our Lenten Fast is supposed to make us Hunger for God.
I already hunger for the day we can gather again at the table of the Lord and celebrate Jesus’ presence in the breaking of the Bread.
-Fr Mike

Watch Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist

Sign up for FORMED

As we are all missing the Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, I think that this is a wonderful time for us to delve deep into the understanding what a true gift we have had to be able to receive the Eucharist daily.  During this period of longing let take this opportunity to discover what FORMED has to offer.  Let’s watch Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist and share what we lean or rediscover with our family and friends.
