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. The posts themselves follow the Blogger format of newest items on top.

Holy Spirit, New Hyde Park

Holy Spirit Church is located on the south side of Jericho Turnpike (NY 25) in New Hyde Park.  The rectory address is 11 South Sixth Street, New Hyde Park NY 11040, telephone 516-354-0359.  
Bishop Charles McDonnell of Brooklyn established this parish in 1897 as Holy Ghost parish.  Five years later, he established the parish of St. Hedwig, a half-mile west.

A note in the parish bulletin states that the 5 p.m. Sunday Mass is not offered during the summer.

Looking north on South Sixth Street, one can view Precious Spirit Child Care Center in the former elementary school.  Also visible are the tall windows of the church with classrooms above it.  At the far end is Jericho Turnpike.  The rectory is to the right of the car.
