Weekly Wisdom
In his Friday, August 21st homily, Fr. Hilbert finds inspiration in the words of Pope Pius X: "Be patient under trial, persevere in prayer." For through that suffering, there is hope. "As we suffer whatever it is we're going throughas an individual, as a family, as a nation, as a worldthat suffering is the cross of Christ. And, we're never closer to Christ than when we are there, at the cross, on the cross with Christ. This gives us great hope." 
On Saturday, August 15th—Feast of the Assumption and Saint Oscar Romero's birthday—the newest member of the St. Ignatius family was christened.

Miles Oscar Bedard, the son of Nicole Bedard—our Director of Religious Education—and her husband Philip—was baptized by Fr. Hilbert, as godparents Brady and Christopher looked on.
Season of Creation: Jubilee for the Earth 2020 by Nicholas Naccari, Member of the Ignatian Social Justice Ministry

Is there anyone reading this who is NOT tired of Zoom calls and meetings? Is there anyone NOT wanting to see their family and friends and, yes, even colleagues, in the flesh—not on a screen? Well, our Ministry—LGBT Catholics and Friends—after Zoom meetings in March, April and May, decided we needed a breath of fresh air (literally). We decided to have picnics in Central Park for our June, July, and August meetings, with the June one in celebration of PRIDE month.
We met at the Mother Goose statue off 72nd Street and Fifth Avenue and shared beverages, snacks, and conversation in the beautiful summer evenings. (As you can see, we took precautions to keep each other safe, but even the masks and social-distancing didn’t dampen the spirit.) It was like a homecoming, and the joy was palpable, as we could be in each other’s real presence after months apart. Together again—there is no substitute.

On Sunday, June 7th, Fr. Yesalonia announced an ambitious expansion of our livestream capabilities at the parish.

By the fall, we will have the capability to livestream Sunday Mass from Church. Additionally, screens will be installed in the Church and so that pre-recorded music can be broadcast into the Church during services.

Eventually, services and events will be livestreamed from the Lady Chapel, the Church, and Wallace Hall.
