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.

How to Interpret the Bible: From Augustine to Bergoglio
Presented by Fr. Peter Dubovsky, S.J., Dean of the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome

Tuesday, May 6th at 7:00 PM, Wallace Hall

Biblical interpretation has a long and often uneasy history. It can be a battlefield of differing theological and spiritual schools. Various interpretations may fall across a full spectrum, from what is heretical or academically suspect to what is wonderfully appealing or even enlightening.

This lecture will consider different approaches to the Bible, their pluses and minuses, and will ask what makes for good and right interpretation of Biblical texts. To accomplish this, we will employ Jesuit Fr. John W. O’Malley’s understanding of culture as presented in his book, Four Cultures of the West.

A brief presentation will follow on the work of the Gregorian University Foundation by Fr. Alan Fogarty, S.J., President

Sponsored by the Gregorian University Foundation & the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola

Update on Making All Things New: The Archdiocesan Pastoral Initiative
Over the past two months, the Core Team for St. Ignatius Loyola has been meeting with our Cluster parishes (Holy Agony, St. Francis de Sales, and St. Thomas More). During those meetings, the Teams have shared parish self-assessments, discussed the current reality, and have begun to explore how to build a stronger collective community through collaboration.

By bringing together the strengths and weaknesses of each of the four parishes, we believe we can achieve this goal while we reach out to the forgotten and underserved of the “periphery,” as Pope Francis has invited us to do.

Click here to read a detailed overview of some of the key thoughts that have emerged during this ongoing dialogue.
