Outreach

As a faith community in the Ignatian Jesuit tradition, we are especially mindful of our neighbors in need. We both practice hands-on charity and care for the sick and needy and advocacy against unjust structures in our society which oppress the poor and militate for war. In all of our outreach activities we collaborate with other Christian Churches and non-Christian Religious Congregations on the upper East Side of Manhattan and beyond.

From the Pastor
Dear Parishioners,

I have a bit of personal news to share: our Jesuit Provincial has asked me to take on a new assignment. As of September 1st, I will be joining the Provincial staff in a newly created position: Provincial Assistant for Spirituality Ministries. The job description is still in process, but basically I will be working closely with the two East Coast provincials in coordinating our retreat house ministries and other spirituality programs.

This means that I will be finishing my tenure as pastor. The plan is for me to end here in mid-June and then take the summer off for some rest and renewal.

I am happy to inform you that the Provincial has named Father Tom Feely, S.J., as temporary Administrator of the parish, for a period of one year. The parish is blessed to have someone as capable and dedicated as Fr. Feely moving into this role, especially since he already knows and loves the parish so well.

We have much for which to be grateful. May God continue to bless us all, now and into the future.

Rev. George Witt, S.J.
Pastor
