“I find so much happiness living here with my fellow priests and in the entire community, and I deeply appreciate the support I receive, especially during this challenging time because of the pandemic. Thank you for making this home possible.” – Father Peter Liu
Please accept my deepest thanks for your prayers and continued financial support for our senior priests residing at St. Pius X Enriched Living Facility.
When a diocesan priest is ordained, he makes a lifelong commitment to serve the needs of the faithful in the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Even in retirement our priests continue to make a profound impact on the spiritual and personal lives of Catholics of all ages. They celebrate Mass in area parishes, visit the sick and homebound, and bring God’s Word to those in prison. After a lifetime of sacrifice and service, no priest should face retirement without the care and support they may need with daily living.
St. Pius X provides a life-enriching experience for the men who live there, enabling our dedicated priests to live or recuperate at a facility that gives them the extra care and attention that they need. At the same time, St. Pius X allows them to serve as active, fully engaged members of the community.
Please, take some time to review the enclosed materials. I encourage you to give prayerful consideration of a gift in support of our retired priests living at St. Pius X Enriched Living Facility. May I ask that you remember all our priests in your prayers as I know you and your family are remembered in ours.
Sincerely in Christ:
Most Reverend John O. Barres
Bishop of Rockville Centre

Hope this letter finds you well especially this COVID-19 pandemic has continuously thrown the world into crisis. Schools and offices, restaurants and bars, governments, friends, and families have been forced to reevaluate their conduct and everyday business activities. The church is no exception to these drastic changes and shifts of the world.
As a result of COVID-19, parents had to learn the new technologies and re-learn with their children at home. They had to be the teachers/catechists of their own child/ren. This past year, the logistics surrounding sacramental preparation and class instructions had to be sorted out by both the parish and Diocese. The pandemic also called into question whether or not we will be able to hold in-person classes during this school year. As a result, we had to make decisions, some minor and some major about the Religious Ed Program.
Some families of the lower grade levels have decided to teach their own child/ren at home but unfortunately no new families registered for this year. There’s also the fact that the class(es) only have 1 or 2 children per class. The best options we can offer for 1-6 grade levels are for home study.
For 7-8th grade levels and any who prefer in-person classes, St Edwards has agreed to welcome the children into their classes.
We hope and pray that whatever the purpose of this pandemic in our lives and in this world that we learn to trust and continue to have Faith in God and one another.
Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you one way or another regarding the faith formation of your child/ren. Please stay well and safe.
