This blog may evolve as a mixture of the history and geography of Catholic parishes in Nassau County. In no way is this blog official. Please scroll down.
The heart of the Christian community is our Triune Lord: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Geography, history, and numbers are not the heart, but probably I will type mostly on these topics. As the internet already provides many encouraging spiritual guides and discouraging contentious forums, I intend to offer neither. ----- To find a parish, enter a keyword in the search box at the top left, or look through the labels and links down the right-hand column.
