Overlooking beautiful Lake Ronkonkoma, mid-island in the Diocese of Long Island, St. Mary's is a strategic parish located within the three largest school districts on Long Island and the most highly populated area in Suffolk County.
The church has a strong Cursillo tradition in the congregation and deep awareness of Christ's action in their lives, in worship and outreach ministry. We would like to develop our Folk Mass into a contemporary worship experience reaching out to millennials and families.
