Moving away from the shore and back to my home town for a series – if 4 is a series – of images of the church I grew up in. This is the old St. Raphael’s Church in East Meadow, NY. The parish has built a beautiful, modern sanctuary and this is all that remains of the St. Raphael’s of my childhood. The structure is in the shape of an “L”, with the altar right at the lower left corner where the horizontal and vertical lines of an “L” meet. This is taken from the alter looking at the longest part of the sanctuary.

Nicely photographed. Is this section still in use, or is it to be rebuilt/refurbished?
Thanks Lignum. I am going to write about that in the posts to follow. Sadly, the old building is not in use and is in decay.
Very nice image. It must be a little tough to see this church so empty.
It was hard Rich. Wonderful memories and why not make use of the building? Thanks for stopping by.
