Lenten Forty Day Food Drive - Feb. 22nd - April 8th - Dear Parish and Day School Families: “Let us not grow tired of Doing Good” During Lent, as we prepare for Easter, we are encouraged to pray, to fast or sacrifice  and maybe even more so to take on a service or charitable project.  In that vein, please find attached a Lenten 40-Day Walking Path to help continue feeding the hungry on Long Island. At our 2022  Advent Food Drive we collected 2004 pounds of food and toiletries which equates to 1670 meals for those with food insecurity.   The food that we donated to Island Harvest was distributed to food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and shelters across the Island.

God calls us, Grace Episcopal Church, Massapequa, to be a welcoming home for Christian families, individuals, and youth who seek spiritual enrichment and comfort.r

We are an intergenerational Episcopal parish -- a congregation that lives its mission through service to those among us, and others, who are in need.  We are a fellowship of Christian people committed to worshiping God and serving Him in the Church and the world. As a parish family, we find joyful unity in the grace of God the Father, the love of Jesus Christ, and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.  

All are welcome to worship with us, and all who have been baptized in the name of The Trinity are welcome to share in the Eucharist.

The Very Rev. Dr. Walter V. Hillebrand
12th Rector of Grace Church/Head of School
Dean of South East Nassau Deanery



Parish Prayer

Almighty God, your loving providence has brought us together into the sacred fellowship of this parish.  Help us, we pray, to worship you with such holy worship, to serve you with such unselfish love, and to give so generously, for the extension of your kingdom, that we may become worthy members of your Holy Catholic Church, and that our parish may faithfully fulfill its mission - - to serve the Lord through: education within the Christian environment, responsible stewardship and witness and service to the wider community through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and resigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever, Amen
