St. John's Office And Contact Information

Rectory hours (Parish office) - in the Blue House on Ocean Avenue: This is where you make appointments to meet with our priests, pick up a mass card, drop off materials and it's usually a good “first stop” at SJE. We seek to be as present as we can to those who come to our doors. We are open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Monday to Thursday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. from Friday and Saturday. We close from noon to 1 each day to give our staff free time.
Phone Numbers: 631.878.0009.

Inspired by our patron, St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in Center Moriches seeks to bring the light of Christ to a world in need, so that as Christ has done, we may also do.
From the celebration of the Eucharist, we are sent forth to serve God and neighbor through ministries of formation, education and outreach.
