On December 9, 2016, Pope Francis appointed Most Reverend John O. Barres, S.T.D., J.C.L., D.D., to serve as the fifth Bishop of Rockville Centre. Until then, he was serving as Bishop of the Diocese of Allentown, PA. He succeeds Bishop William Murphy, who has led the Diocese of Rockville Centre since 2001.
We keep them both in our prayers.
The St. Patrick School experience teaches a “Vision for the Future” while it instills values for a lifetime. A fully-accredited Middle States Association of Elementary Schools institution, St. Patrick School has been recognized for its “wonderful long heritage of strong quality Catholic education in its community.” For over 90 years, St. Patrick School has excelled in educating students to meet and exceed all state and national curricula guidelines.
In the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy, St. Patrick helps each child to reach his or her potential, academically and spiritually. Inspired by the Gospel’s message of respect, courtesy, understanding, compassion and moral character, a St. Patrick Education guides each child’s journey into life as an educated, responsible and well-rounded individual.
