Clergy and Pastoral Staff Office Hours
Our clergy and pastoral staff are available to meet with you by phone or by video chat for pastoral conversation. Make an appointment online.
Morning and Evening Prayer
Mondays and Fridays, 9am
Morning and Evening Prayer consist of hymns, psalms, readings and prayers and join us with the whole church who regularly prays at these “hours.” Join Zoom meeting. We will be using the free, digital version of Give Us This Day; you should have this open on your computer when you join.
Praying in Sacred Space (Resumes September 12)
Thursdays, 7-8pm (tune in at 6:50)
Saturdays, 4-5pm (tune in at 3:50)
We will pray with the upcoming Sunday readings in an Ignatian way, savor the silence, and share with others who are seeking God during this time of a global pandemic. Be safe in your home, be connected to community, and be companioned by Christ!
Virtual Coffee and Donut Hour
The Parish Life Committee invites you to reconnect at one of our upcoming Sunday morning Coffee and Donut gatherings. After viewing our Mass on YouTube, grab a cup of coffee and a donut from your kitchen and join us on Zoom. Zoom sessions will be hosted by members of the Parish Life Committee together with fellow parishioners. Don’t be surprised to see Father Kevin and our other Jesuits join in the discussion.
Praying with the Rosary
Pope Francis, as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, recently made a statement encouraging everyone during the month of May “to rediscover the beauty of the rosary” by praying this centuries old devotional prayer either as a group or individually. Fr. Kevin Gillespie will continue to host a group rosary via Zoom now on Tuesdays.
