The St. Pio of Pietrelcina Society Invites everyone to join them for monthly prayer meetings and  to visit the blessed Sacrament as often as your schedule and commitments permit.

Holy Rosary is a community of believers centered in Jesus Christ and rooted in the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. We are a people who celebrate the presence of God among us in Word and Sacrament.

Deriving our strength from the Eucharist, we are committed to the following:

+ Preaching the gospel by word and example.

+ Educating members of our Parish community, especially the young, in the Catholic Faith.

+ Providing welcome, comfort and support to the vulnerable among us, especially the poor.

+ Creating a spirit of evangelization in the community, encouraging newcomers to Belong and those who may be alienated to feel welcome.

   Your regular supportive  donation is greatly appreciated and needed especially during these challenging times of Covid-19. Please continue to pray for the priests of the Archdiocese of New York and religious and our Country. May Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception continue to protect beloved land.

Everyone is encouraged to attend the actual Eucharist Celebration (Mass) and practice social distance with PPEs.

One can not stress enough “please be safe and remain healthy."
