To Welcome, To Worship, To Grow, To Serve


Dear Friends,                                                                          

Restoring the Glory…To Welcome…To Worship…To Grow…To Serveis a capital campaign important to the history of St. John of God Parish.  You have made it so!  It is your generosity, your sacrifices, your fidelity, your encouragement ….which have contributed so much to the progress of the refurbishment of church and chapel since 2007.  For years to come, the parishioners here in Central Islip will look back to you as their “spiritual ancestors” who improved the church and chapel so that many would have fitting places of worship.          

God Bless and Thanks! Fr. Jim

2009 Site Plan

View of walkway toward Chapel entrance and Memorial Garden.

The Memorial Garden will have a statue of St. John of God honoring all donors and loved ones, living and deceased.  Demolition of the former rectory will make this plan possible including a few more parking spots and safety lanes for emergency vehicles.
