Our Parish Mission will be held Monday-Wednesday, June 1-3 after 8:45 AM Mass and 7:30 PM in the church. The theme is: "I am with you ALWAYS . blessed are the people God has chosen." The presenters are Sister Karen Cavanagh, CSJ and Rev. Senan Taylor, OFM Cap.



Bereavement - If you have recently lost a loved one and would like to join the group for some compassionate listening, honest sharing and consoling prayer, please come to the Center.  Individual (one on one) sessions are available on request.  Sessions run on a 6 week cycle.  Meetings are at 7:00 PM on Mondays.

Journeying Into the Sunday Scripture - The sessions include prayer, scripture, faith sharing, and topics appropriate for the Liturgical seasons.  The group meets on Thursday at 9:30 AM.  New members are always welcome.

Spiritual Direction - The focus of spiritual direction is to help the directed person deepen their relationship with God.  Both the director and directee agree to meet regularly so that the directee might pay closer attention to God. A Spiritual

Director helps you:

--to be more aware of who God is for you

--to notice God's movement in the events of your life and in your prayer

--to be able to talk about what you are experiencing

--to reverence and savor your experiences of God

--to be attentive to God's invitations, urging, confirmations

--to recognize resistances and roadblocks in the process of making choices that respond to God's invitation

In Spiritual Direction you are far more active than the director is, but you are also fully assisted by the loving attitude and attentiveness of the director.  If you feel God inviting you, and you would like Sister Ann to be a companion on your journey, please call her at the Spirituality Center at 718-921-9518.

Book Discussion Group - meets every 6 weeks at 7:00 PM is the Spirituality Center.  New members are welcome.
