Sacred Heart Church at 27905 Main Road, Cutchogue, NY 11935 US - About Us
SACRED HEART, Cutchogue, L.I. — This parish was organized by Rev. John McKenna as a mission of Southold. He built the original church and attended it for some time, and was succeeded bv Revs. J. F. Crowleyand R. Foley. In 1901, Father James H. Lynch, having renovated the new Church of the Sacred Heart at Cutchogue and built a new rectory, removed from Southold and took up his residence there. This separated Cutchogue from Southold and it became an independent parish under the care of Father Lynch, who, in May, 1909, was transferred to the pastorate of St. Martin of Tours, and was succeeded at Cutchogue by Rev. John B. Lyle.
Father Lyle made his classical and theological course at St John's College and Seminary, Brooklyn, and was ordained in 1898 by Bishop McDonnell. He was an assistant at the Church of Our Lady of Good Counsel for five years and went from there to St. Stephen's, where he remained until appointed to Cutchogue. During his pastorate the church has been enlarged, new pews installed, and a parish hall erected. He has now the care of 400 souls, with a church property valued at $50,000, on which there is no debt. About 90 children attend the Sunday School.
