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. Patrick, Glen Cove

St Patrick's church, Glen Cove NY

This 2006 photo from my Flickr pages shows (to the left) All Saints Regional Catholic School and (to the right) St. Patrick's church, with the afternoon sun. Glen Street is in the foreground, and the LIRR Glen Street station is off to the right (south). A pedestrian can reach the parish office, church, and school by climbing from this side. Drivers can find a parking lot up Pearsall Avenue along the left side of the school. Another entrance to all the buildings is behind the school.  The mailing address of the parish office is 235 Glen Street, Glen Cove, NewYork 11542, telephone 516-676-0276. What was an excellent parish website may be off-line temporarily.

Any photo may be enlarged by clicking on it.

Above are the church and school as seen from the Pearsall Avenue entrance.

According to diocesan archives, Irish, fleeing the famine, arrived in Glen Cove to work in a starch factory.  For several years, priests from Jamaica visited Glen Cove for their care.  In 1856, Bishop John Loughlin of Brooklyn established St. Patrick's parish.  The present church has the above cornerstone.

This is the main door of All Saints Regional Catholic School.  Please see the school's website for information.  The postal address is 12 Pearsall Avenue, Glen Cove NY 11542, telephone 516-676-0762. Five parishes sponsor the school: St. Mary (Roslyn), St. Patrick, St. Rocco, St. Boniface Martyr, and St. Hyacinth. A promotional video from January, 2012, is linked here.
A half-mile south of St. Patrick's church is the parish of St. Rocco, established in 1937. In 2012, the same priest is pastor of both parishes.  Weekdays, Mass at St. Rocco is at 7:30 a.m., at St. Patrick at 9 a.m. (as of May, 2012).
