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, ...

Religious Ed enrollment 2015
The 2016 Official Catholic Directory, recently published, gives religious education enrollments in most of the Catholic parishes in the borough of Brooklyn. Presumably most of the counts are from 2015 or earlier, and some of the figures are missing, so my t...

A sign announcing Amtrak and New Jersey Transit trains will be replaced by smaller LCD screens, upsetting those who view it with nostalgia but pleasing commuter advocates.

BroadHollow Theater Company not only stages plays at East Islip, but it also uses the marvelous auditorium of the Elmont Public Library, convenient at 700 Hempstead Turnpike, Elmont NY 11003. Today, Mother's Day, we enjoyed the lively, engaging, and well-staged production of "The Pirates of Penzance." The actors and actresses were top-notch, with excellent singing, and perfect audibility. Many thanks to the work of all of you!

Today, December 27th, is the feast day of the church's patron, St. John, Apostle and Evangelist. Please allow a quip. Because neither title Apostle or Evangelist (nor even the Baptist, a different person) follows the name of the church, people would inquire, "You come from St. John's? Which St. John?" Jesting reply, "St. John of Kingsbridge."

For maybe two decades, the people at Seaford Vac and Sew have been a reliable source of parts for the vacuum cleaners we use at our house. Our Eureka is old, but they have the needed replacement belts and bags. Never do we hear, "No longer in stock." ---- They have also been great on repairs. Thanks!

Because of a good two years with Verizon's Samsung basic Smooth cell phone at $100/year, I wanted to buy one for my wife. The staff at Radio Shack, Sunrise Mall, had what I wanted (the similar but newer Samsung Gusto 2) and easily signed me up at the desired $100/year plan. The knowledge, competence, and courtesy of the staff is impressive. Many thanks!
