Office of Human Resources


The Human Resources staff of the Diocese of Rockville Centre provides support to clergy, lay ministers, employees and volunteers serving in the Chancery, parishes, schools and other entities of the Diocese of Rockville Centre.

We provide tools, policies and resources to diocesan employees who lead, manage, supervise and work at the Diocese.  We serve the practical, legal, and procedural needs of human resource management within the Diocese and are committed to supporting employees and their supervisors in achieving effective work relationships that adhere to the values of a Catholic institution.  

It is critical to remember that all Human Resources functions, benefits programs and employment relationships of and with any organization of the Roman Catholic Church on Long Island are, first and foremost, subject at all times to the ethical and religious precepts of the Roman Catholic Church as interpreted and applied by the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rockville Centre (the “Diocesan Bishop”).  The Diocesan Bishop is the final arbiter of the application of such precepts to all aspects of Human Resource functions, benefits programs and employment relationships, regardless of any other provisions of related documents such as Employee Handbooks or workplace postings.  These precepts, as interpreted and applied by the Diocesan Bishop, shall be the guiding principles upon which all terms of such documents should be understood.
