FEBRUARY BOOK SELECTION: Rules of Civility by Amor Towles

On the last night of 1937, 25-year-old Katey Kontent is in a second-rate Greenwich Village jazz bar when Tinker Grey, a handsome banker, happens to sit down at the neighboring table. This chance encounter and its startling consequences propel Katey on a year-long journey into the upper echelons of New York society—where she will have little to rely upon other than a bracing wit and her own brand of cool nerve.

Ignatian Social Justice
Time: Thursday, February 21 at 7:00 pm
Location: Conference Room


Ignatian Social Justice is a ministry of the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola made up of parishioners committed to:
(1) raising awareness of current Catholic social teaching; and
(2) advocating for social justice on timely and underappreciated issues.

The volunteer group embraces the responsibility to inform, engage, and mobilize parishioners to promote social justice in our local community. The ministry divides its time between advocacy and promoting awareness through a dialog with local leaders on social justice issues. The ministry is especially committed to pursuing issues and perspectives that would not otherwise be apparent to St. Ignatius parishioners.

The Art of Forgiveness
Time: Wednesday, February 27

Session 1: Wednesday, February 27th at 7:00 PM | Gonzaga Meeting Room
Session 2: Tuesday, March 12th at 7:00 PM | Parish Lounge

Forgiveness and reconciliation are a journey we are all called to undertake. If we are to answer God’s invitation to ever deeper conversion, we must become practitioners of the art of forgiveness. Our presentations and conversation will focus on self-forgiveness, moving beyond the “soul suicide” of revenge and control, and transforming brokenness into wisdom and compassion.

Brian B. Pinter, Pastoral Associate, will facilitate the discussion.

This will be a two-session class. Attendance at both sessions is recommended but not required. 

All are welcome.
