Strengths

They are a forward thinking parish in discerning ministry to the growing Latino population in Hempstead. While a traditional predominantly West Indian parish, they understand that the tomorrow of Hempstead is Hispanic. While they are keen conservers of the tradition they know that the future brings change.  They have a deep heart for outreach and a building designated for outreach in search of a mission.  They have significant internal formation activities. They are building external relationships to assist in mission.

Challenges

Intellectually they know change is necessary, however embracing structural change will be difficult. They are in need of stewardship development and re-visioning of property use for current holdings. There are some building issues, but nothing to compromise the integrity of the physical plant. They are seeking spiritual growth and depth to prepare them for ministry and mission.
