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.

Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, Point Lookout

In Point Lookout, the church of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal faces south.  To the right is Parkside Drive, which travels north only about 50 yards to the only traffic signal in the hamlet of Point Lookout. The address is 75 Parkside Drive, Post Office Box 20, Point Lookout, NY 11569, telephone 516-431-2772.  The parish website is linked here.
If the above description of the streets is not clear, let me rephrase it.  All traffic enters the small community of Point Lookout eastbound.  At the first and only traffic signal, turn right onto Parkside Drive.  You will soon see the church.

Any photo may be enlarged by clicking on it.  The above photo was taken in April, 2012.

This parish is one of three parishes sponsoring Long Beach Catholic Regional School, six miles west.
There are two parishes in the Diocese of Rockville Centre under the patronage of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.  In 1936, the OLMM parish in Wyandanch, Suffolk County, was established, followed the next year by the establishment of this OLMM parish in Point Lookout.
Point Lookout has a population of about 1,500.
