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.

St. Joseph, Garden City

St. Joseph church, Garden City, is located on the southwest corner of Franklin Avenue and Fifth Street.  The parish office is at 130 Fifth Street, Garden City, NY 11530, telephone 516-747-3535.  The parish website is linked here.

The parish was established in 1905.  This cornerstone of this church carries the date 1953.  To the left and right of the altar are paintings of Joseph at Nazareth.

Over the main entrance is this bas-relief, presumably showing Joseph as patron of the universal church.  The motto reads, "Go to Joseph."

The title reads, "Head of the nurturing family."  

The title reads, "Get up and take the boy," presumably in flight to Egypt.

St. Therese of Lisieux stands in the church garden.

The address of St. Joseph parish school is 450 Franklin Avenue, Garden City, NY 11530, telephone 516-747-2730.  The school website is linked here.  Franklin Avenue is to the east (left).  To the west is a newer classroom building, connected to this building by a second-floor bridge.
