There is no greater example of love, freedom, and bravery.READ MORE

During Lent, we are called to prayer, fasting and alms giving. In our busy world, prayer can be the most challenging of the three. Do you find prayer difficult? Could you use a little guidance? Peter Kreeft’s book “Prayer for Beginners” is available as an ebook on FORMED.
The Long Island Volunteer Center, working in conjunction with Nassau Community College Marketing and Fashion students, will be collecting new and gently used prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and accessories (including dressy shoes, evening bags, costume jewelry and sheets/fabric to wrap the dresses) for the 24th Annual Prom Boutique.
