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.

Daily Advent Reflection: December 13th

The Incarnation is a making new, a restoration, of all the universe’s forces and powers; Christ is the Instrument, the Center, the End, of the whole of animate and material creation; through Him, everything is created, sanctified and vivified.” — Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.

I love visiting the American Museum of Natural History, especially during the holiday season. A friend recently suggested I visit the Cosmic Pathway in a prayerful way to marvel at and meditate on creation and the universe. Amid the cacophony of the museum, I was suddenly struck with a wideness, with wonder and found that I could hear a song in my heart. The dramatic creation of the universe with matter colliding together to form stars and galaxies, planets and people, and the quiet Incarnation when Christ came into the world as an infant are two movements in the same symphony. Christ is the conductor of this song that plays in the heartstrings of all things created, calling us back to the Creator.
— Teresa Marie Cariño, Pastoral Associate
