We want to give a special thank you to Mr. Hilary Mathwasa for his talents and contributions to making this project a success.



As we are all aware, the HHS Mandate that requires many religious organizations and people of faith to participate in the violation of their consciences poses a significant threat to religious liberty.
The attached call to action has been distributed to thousands of Catholics throughout New York state with the goal of having many thousands of people state-wide demand that action be taken legislatively to rectify the assault on religious freedom represented by the Mandate. Our elected officials need to understand that there are thousands of us who will not stand idly by while our freedom from government intrusion upon our beliefs is taken from us.


Help Protect Religious Liberty

Dear Friend,
The Diocese of Rockville Centre joins with Long Island Citizens for Religious Liberty, a non-partisan group of concerned citizens dedicated to the protection and promotion of the First Amendment right to the free exercise of religious belief, to work against the federal government's rule, issued by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, requiring religious organizations to buy, or subsidize, products and services that violate their religious beliefs and moral consciences ("the HHS mandate.")

Our Lady of Wisdom Regional Catholic School was founded in 1938 by the Daughters of Wisdom. We are located in Port Jefferson, New York, serving children from kindergarten through eighth grade. Our students are generated principally from four parishes: Infant Jesus in Port Jefferson, Saint Gerard Majella in Port Jefferson Station, Saint James in Setauket, Saint Louis de Montfort in Sound Beach as well as surrounding school districts.

Our Lady of Wisdom Regional Catholic School ensures that each child in our care will have a high quality education in a loving, caring and structured environment incorporating God’s influence within the learning experience. The school provides an excellent education within a faith based community conscious of the importance and individuality of each child to God, our Heavenly Father. Our students are made aware of their talents, which we as a school community nurture and cultivate to the fullest.

The Administration and Faculty aspire to explore and enhance our student’s full potential as well as to provide a diversified learning situation in which personal achievement and success are attainable. The New York State Learning Standards, including guidelines set forth by the Diocese of Rockville Centre, are applied to all curriculum areas. It is our desire to educate the whole child, spiritually, and intellectually.
