History of our care

From 2009 to 2021, St. Pius X Residence was located within Dominican Village, a not-for-profit Retirement and Assisted Living Community established by the Amityville Dominican Sisters on the grounds of their Motherhouse on Long Island.   Appropriately named for St. Pius X, known for his sense of compassion and benevolence, and the only Pope in the 20th century with extensive pastoral experience at the parish level. 


Prior to this arrangement, retired priests resided on the second floor of Uniondale’s St. Pius X Preparatory Seminary’s faculty residence, but the age and condition of the facility precluded further renovations.  This new residence is better suited to the needs of our retired priests.


Increasing costs at Dominican Village made it advantageous for the Diocese to purchase it own property to house the current and anticipated continued increase of the need for such a facility.  The new facility is located in Ronkonkoma, the past home of the Cenacle sisters. Accommodations include apartments with one bedroom, kitchenette, living room and bathroom.  Studios which are located in the nursing wing have a small living room and bathroom.  The amenities include visiting doctors, a gym room, a staffed dining room, a chapel and a nursing staff that includes licensed practicing nurse and certified nurse assistants.  St. Pius X Residence is a response to the compassionate Christ and the Church’s mandate to care for those who ministered as priests to the people of god by providing for the spiritual, educational, medical, recreational and communal life of the retired priest residents.
