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.

St. Boniface the Martyr, Sea Cliff

St. Boniface Martyr church stands on the northwest corner of Glen Avenue and Carpenter Avenue.  Its address is 145 Glen Avenue, Sea Cliff NY 11579, telephone 516-676-0676.  The parish website is linked here, but unfortunately the history section is unavailable to the reading public (as of 2.15.2012).

The stained glass window at the right seems to answer the question, "Which St. Boniface the Martyr?" Apparently it is not the man martyred about 307, but rather the Englishman Boniface, Apostle to the Germans, who cut down a sacred oak, and was martyred in 754.  His body was brought to Fulda.

The parish has a religious education program and is one of five parishes sponsoring All Saints Regional Catholic School in Glen Cove.

The parish office is on the south side of Glen Avenue, facing the church. Bus route N21 along Glen Avenue connects this location with Flushing and Glen Cove, generally hourly.
