"The parish is where the Church lives. Parishes are communities of faith, of action, and of hope. They are where the Gospel is proclaimed and celebrated, where believers are formed and sent to renew the earth. Parishes are the home of the Christian community; they are the heart of our Church. Parishes are the place where God's people meet Jesus in word and sacrament and come in touch with the source of the Church's life." —Communities of Salt and Light, p. 1

Ignatian Silent Retreat is back! This year’s retreat, with appropriate COVID precautions, is scheduled for September 24-26, 2021 at the Redemptorist Renewal Center.
Father Chris Corbally, SJ and Dr. Aileen O' Donoghue, both astronomers, will lead us in prayer on the theme: "The World is Charged with the Grandeur of God: St. Ignatius and our Care of Creation.”
In this retreat, rooted in the Spiritual Exercises, we will embrace the Lord’s invitation through St. Ignatius to “find God in all things,” from the most intimate parts of ourselves to the vast expanse of the universe. We will consider the joy that St. Ignatius felt from simply “staring at the sky and all the stars,” and the desire to serve and care for all Creation that they inspired in him.
There will be opportunities for personal prayer, Mass, and guided stargazing.
Come and experience the miracle of our lives and the life that surrounds us. Silence will be an important part of this retreat, allowing time for prayer and reflection on what God is doing now, and on what God is asking each of us to be doing in collaboration.
