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 Name of Jesus, Woodbury

The church of the Holy Name of Jesus is located at 690 Woodbury Road, Woodbury NY 11797, telephone 516-921-2334.  Its website is linked here.  The front of the church (shown above, with the main door in morning shadows) faces west into the parking lot of an office building.  Ahead, to the north one can see some of the senior housing built on what was a parish field or lawn.  There are several directional signs on Woodbury Road guiding the traveler into Carnegie Court alongside the housing, which leads to the church.  The website mentioned above has driving directions.

Above, the view looks along the south side of the church.  The rectory is to the left.

The rectory faces the church.
Catholic Koreans gather here for two Masses on Sundays, at 9:30 a.m. and noon.
The September 28, 2012, edition of Long Island Business News related how, in the year 2000, Holy Name parish sold six of its ten acres for 114 senior apartments.
