Roman Catholic Church, Seaford, New York

Pastor's Message

Welcome to Maria Regina!

I'd like to welcome you to the website of our parish, Maria Regina in Seaford New York!Fr. Frank
We are a Roman Catholic community located on the South Shore of Long Island.  We number approximately 6,000 families and are committed to the teachings and challenges of Vatican II. We join with our sisters and brothers in the Diocese of Rockville Centre as we search for ways to 'Belong More Deeply' to the Church and to be evangelizers of our Faith.

We are proud of the great amount of lay involvement here at MR.  On any given night, you might find over 15 people cooking in our kitchen to provide food for The INN (Interfaith Nutritional Network), a Family Faith session for over 1800 children, choir practice or handbell choir, the Rosary being prayed at Our Lady's Grotto on Jerusalem Avenue, a Liturgy Committee meeting, an Outreach volunteer providing food or advocacy, or any number of other ministries. They are all represented on the pages of this website.

I invite you to spend some time at the website of our school.  You will find a link to that page through this site. Our school is a premier Early Childhood, Elementary and Middle-School Catholic School which is in its 57th year of fine education.  Our school offers classes from Nursery and Pre-K through the 8th grade and rates among the finest on Long Island. Our faculty, fully accredited through the New York State Department of Education, devote their lives to the future of our young people. 
The Ministry of Faith Formation (Religious Education) is a busy school of over 1,500 young people and more than 150 Catechists.  What a blessing, but also an obligation which we take very seriously, to pass the faith on through the Sacraments and 8 years of instruction to the next generation.  

Our Web page will provide you with an introduction to the ministry and worship of our parish.  It will give you an over-view of the 'goings on' of this busy community of faith. I also would like to invite you to visit our campus, to pray with us and join with us as we strive to witness to Christ at all times and in all ways. 

May God bless you and your family, and welcome to Maria Regina!
