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.

North Hempstead deanery

The Diocese of Rockville Centre has seven deaneries in Nassau County.  The North Hempstead Deanery includes the following parishes, in order of foundation:
1863 -- St. Mary, Manhassset
1876 -- St. Aloysius, Great Neck.
1893 -- Holy Spirit, New Hyde Park.
1901 -- St. Peter of Alcantara, Port Washington
1901 -- Corpus Christi, Mineola.
1925 -- St. Aidan, Williston Park
1941 -- Notre Dame, New Hyde Park.
1948 -- Our Lady of Fatima, Manorhaven.
The North Hempstead deanery is not coterminous with the Town of North Hempstead.
Four of the eight parishes support a parish elementary school: St. Aidan (at about 600 students, maybe the sixth largest in the diocese), St. Mary, St. Peter of Alcantara, and Notre Dame.  St. Mary's parish, Manhasset, hosts a parish high school.
