What's Happening at Maria Regina


UnityMaria Regina is proud to host this year's Evening of Prayer for Christian Unity on Sunday, January 25 at 7:00 PM.  This ecumenical prayer is sposored by St. William the Abbot, First United Methodist, Our Redeemer Lutheran and Maria Regina Parishes. This year's theme is Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."  We invite all Christians from the Seaford and Massapequa areas to join us for this important prayer.  The homily will be offered by Pastor Ron Klose of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church and the music and bell choirs will be ministered by the combined choirs of these 4 parishes.  Here is an opportunity to bring families and friends together to pray about and discuss the need for the unity of all Christian Churches and to enjoy the best of our common traditions.  Hospitality will follow.

MR SChoolMaria Regina School has opened for our 53rd year of fine Catholic Education. Our school is overflowing with excited young children.  Because of high demand, we now offer 3 classes of Nursery and 4 of Pre-K with over 100 children in the Early Childhood Programs as well as classes from Kindergarten to the 8th Grade. We are proud to announce a new and energetic principal for Maria Regina: Mrs. Leona Arpino.  Mrs. Arpino comes to us after having completed 8 years as Principal of St. Joseph's Catholic School in Ronkonkoma. She brings a great love for our children and for Catholic Education on Long Island. We welcome 4 new teachers as well: Miss Stephanie LaTorre (Pre-K), Miss Elizabeth Tantillo (2nd Grade), Mrs. Stephanie Hahn (4th Grade), and Mrs. Margaret Rainone (Music). Our Music, Phys Ed and Support Programs have all been expanded and we continue to move forward as a S.T.E.A.M. School through a new program called 'Horizons', which will enable our children to choose to participate in hands-on learning, creating and exploring in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.  New changes.... new beginnings....great future!  Maria Regina School!  Call today for a tour or for more information.

When you think of Catholic Education, you think of discipline, outstanding academics, a family-centered atmosphere and, of course, the Catholic faith taught and lived.  Here at MR we want to send forth students who have been formed with deep consciences, morals and a working knowledge of their faith which will asssist them to move into the High School and College Years, ready to serve the world one day. This can only be accomplished through a consistent and challenging spiritual awareness that stems from a teacher who is not afraid to confront the issues of the world and place them in the context of the Gospel of Christ, our Lord. We now have such a person in Mrs. Barbara Haase.  Mrs. Haase will work with the mid and upper grades in their Religious Studies.  She will touch hearts, share faith, catechize and exemplify service.  Let us pray for Mrs. Haase and the young people she will work with each day- that the Holy Spirit may continue to breathe through the hallways of MR and each person therein! 


We are happy to announce the beginning of a new ministry here at MR- the Ministry of Welcoming.  To register in our parish, new parishioners are invited to bring their families to an evening session (offered once a month) where they will be introduced to members of the Parish Staff who will welcome them into our faith community.  If you would like to register, or have any questions about our parish, please call (516) 798-2415.
