The Long Island Catholic confirms that The Canons Regular of St. Augustine will staff both St. Patrick's and St. Rocco's in Glen Cove. The 3 priests coming to the Diocese from Austria are American and the new pastor of St. Patrick's is a fellow Chaminade graduate.

"GLEN COVE — The Canons Regular of St. Augustine, a religious order of priests from Austria, will soon establish its first American house with three priests who will staff the parishes of St. Patrick’s and St. Rocco’s here starting next June.

Although the Canons are from Klosterneuburg, near Vienna, the priests who will live here are all Americans, two of them originally from the Rockville Centre Diocese."
