St. Joseph: Spiritual Role Model for Men
Time: Tuesday, December 19 at 7:00 pm
Location: Parish Lounge

St. Joseph was asked by God to play a key role in a mysterious, miraculous, scandalous undertaking. Joseph was also the heir of a complicated spiritual lineage—his ancestors were remembered for their heroic and traumatic deeds. Yet Joseph navigated these paradoxes and tensions with integrity, patience and love.

Join us as we explore how Joseph serves as a role model of male spiritual maturity. Our time together will include a presentation by Brian Pinter, small group sharing, and prayer.

N.P. Mander Organ Recital: Simon Johnson
Time: Sunday, January 14 at 3:00 pm

The magnificent pipe organ at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola—at 5,000 pipes, 30 tons, 45 feet high, with 55,000 parts, four keyboards, 5,000 pipes and 68 different stops—is the largest tracker-action pipe organ in the New York metropolitan area. At a cost of $1.25 million in 1992, its creation by the English organ builder N.P. Mander involved a year of planning and construction in England, and a five-month on-site installation at St. Ignatius Loyola. The N.P. Mander Organ debuted to an audience of 1,800 with a recital by organist David Higgs on April 27, 1993.

All N.P. Mander Organ Recitals feature large-screen projection so that the audience may see the organist at work.
