Adult Faith Formation: How Jewish Traditions Influenced the Eucharist
March 1, 10:10am, Chapel of St. Ignatius
Fr. McDermott will examine the Jewish roots of the Eucharist, which are critical for appreciating what Jesus was and is offering his friends: a new Passover, a new Manna and a new Bread of Presence. On March 8, come back for the second part, when he will offer a theological reflection on the Eucharist. In this Lenten season, Fr. McDermott will help us come to a greater understanding of Eucharist.

Communal Penance Service: Care for Our Common Home
March 18, 7pm, Chapel
In Laudato Si’, Pope Francis calls for a radical reorientation of the role of humanity with creation. He says that we have “come to see ourselves as [the Earth's] lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will. The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life” (LS, 2). Join with fellow parishioners in prayer and penance for the times when we have not contributed to the flourishing of the earth and look forward to the day when an ecological metanoia might be fulfilled to the benefit of the earth, humankind, and the poor.
