Diocesan Bankruptcy Announcement
October 2020

Our Parish received this message relative to the announcement that the Diocese of Rockville Centre has declared bankruptcy:

A Message to the Faithful of the Diocese of Rockville Centre:

As our valued partner in providing spiritual, educational, charitable and cultural activities in the Long Island community, the Diocese of Rockville Centre felt it was important to share the news with you that today we have filed a voluntary petition for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. In addition to the media release attached to this email, a video message from Bishop Barres announcing this filing and other information regarding the filing is posted on the diocesan website: www.drvc.org

We took this necessary action to manage litigation expenses, address disputes with the Diocese’s insurers and facilitate settlements of lawsuits filed under the Child Victims Act. Like many other institutions and the parishioners, we serve, the Diocese has suffered a strain on its finances as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Approximately 40 percent of our annual revenue comes from offertory collections, which have dropped precipitously with attendance at Sunday Mass. 

We believe the restructuring process is the only way to ensure a fair and equitable outcome for everyone involved, including abuse survivors whose compensation settlements will be resolved by the courts.

But rest assured, this process will impede neither our mission to be a spiritual resource to the 1.4 million Catholics who reside in Long Island nor our partnership with your organization.

The Diocese believes its current and future liquidity will be sufficient to fund operations and ministries during the restructuring process and beyond. Operations of the parishes and schools are expected to continue as normal. We will work diligently with all survivors, creditors and ministries to maintain open communication while we work toward our goal of completing a settlement and finalizing a restructuring plan that includes a comprehensive and fair resolution for survivors.

We appreciate your support prayers during this period. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns. You may also find updated information on our website: www.drvc.org.Sean Dolan/516-510-0473

VIRTUS Update

Child Protection at St. Boniface

The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People promulgated by the Bishops of the United States in 2002 outlines specific practices and guidelines providing standards of safety in parishes and diocese throughout the United States.

In an effort to remain in compliance with these directives we are updating our records.

The process has been streamlined and the volunteer application, code of conduct and background screening can be accomplished online at www.Virtus.org. You will need your user name and password to update your account. If you need assistance please contact Virtus at 1-888847-8870 or helpdesk@vitus.org.

Active Volunteers:
If you are an active volunteer you may receive an email from Sterling Volunteers who will be asking you to update your background screening application on-line.

Please be aware that this is not a scam nor has your e-mail been hacked. It is merely a way for the parish to make sure its files are accurate and up to date.

Once you have accessed your account, review the information for accuracy and make any changes necessary by hitting the TOOLBOX tab at the top of the screen and choose Update My Account.
