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. Ignatius Martyr, Long Beach

The mailing address of the parish of St. Ignatius Martyr is 721 West Broadway, Long Beach, NY 11561, telephone 516-432-0045.   The parish website, linked here, includes the Mass schedule and an excellent history of the parish.  The church's patron is St. Ignatius, third bishop of Antioch, martyred in Rome about 108 A.D.   He has left us seven letters.
The above view looks east along West Penn Street, with the church steps on the southwest corner of West Penn Street and Grand Boulevard.  The tall building to the right of the church is the rectory, which faces West Broadway.  To the right of the rectory, in the gap and a short block south, is the Long Beach boardwalk, the wide beach, and the Atlantic Ocean.  As the shoreline runs almost east-west, the view of the ocean is south, and the next land is Turks Island in the Caribbean!
Fortunately, the parish has placed a directional sign (with Sunday Mass schedule) on the Long Beach's principal street, Park Avenue, at Grand Boulevard, pointing four blocks south.

Long Beach Catholic Regional School is at 735 West Broadway, Long Beach NY 11561, telephone 516-432-8900.  The school website is linked here.  Three parishes (St. Ignatius, St. Mary of the Isle, and Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal) sponsor the school.

The above views look east along West Broadway towards Grand Boulevard.
