World Day of Migrants and Refugees
The theme chosen by Pope Francis for the 106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees is “Forced like Jesus Christ to flee.” Parishioners from Holy Trinity and St. Ignatius of Loyola (Chestnut Hill) shared an opportunity to pray and learn from those who study, work with or live the experience of migrants and refugees globally and at our southern border. Watch the video.

Rutilio Grande, a Conversation with Rhina Guidos
March 9, 5pm Register
Please join members of the Maria Madre de los Pobres committee and Rhina Guidos, the author of "Rutilio Grande: A Table for All" in a conversation about Rutilio Grande, the Salvadoran Jesuit who spoke truth to power and was subsequently murdered by Salvadoran security forces on March 12, 1977. Grande, a close friend of Monseñor Oscar Romero, was one of the first Jesuits to implement small Christian Base Communities in his beloved El Salvador; this legacy lives on in the people of Maria Madre de los Pobres who, like other parishes, live this practice today.

Ways to Help
Direct service allows parishioners a chance to help, which is how St. Ignatius described service – nothing lofty, simply helping and working side-by-side with others. This kind of service allows us to form relationships, show solidarity, and learn and work with others, particularly the poor and vulnerable. It also allows us to share the life that God has given us. There are many needs during this crisis. Ways to Help
