  • Dialogue and Reconciliation
    On Sunday, September 30th at 4:30 p.m. in the Murphy Center, our priests: Fr. Richard, Fr. Brendan and Fr. Patrick sat together with parishioners to dialogue on the sex abuse scandal after the Pennsylvania Report. Together we discussed the scandal, addressed concerns our parishioners had and we shared thoughts on how the Church can move forward. Thank you to all who attended. We hope our time together provided some healing comfort and some clarity. Please find the pictures below. You may also click on the podcast to listen to Cardinal Dolan's presentation sharing with us the steps the Archdiocese has taken to keep our children safe.

  • Grieving Parents

    Of all the pains that life can hand us, arguably one of the most searing is the death of a child. As Jesus joined his distraught disciples on the road to Emmaus after his crucifixion, we ask him to join each of us in this ministry as we continue on our difficult journeys from grief to the healing peace that we, like Jesus’ disciples, can find in the Eucharistic community.

    To meet the spiritual needs of parents whose children of any age have died by any cause—no matter how long ago—the Family Life Office offers the Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents. A unique, faith-based program providing spiritual retreats for grieving parents offered by grieving parents, the Emmaus Ministry offers a safe place where you can find peace, comfort, and hope, at least for a time. The entire retreat focuses on the parents’ personal spiritual journey, where one can engage as much or as little as one wants.
