The Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge
Time: Sunday, September 15 at 4:00 pm
Location: Church

Voted the fifth best choir in the world in Gramophone magazine’s ‘20 Greatest Choirs’, The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge comprises around thirty Choral Scholars and two Organ Scholars, all of whom are ordinarily students at the University.

The College’s choral tradition dates back to the all-male choir of the fourteenth century, when former Chapel Royal choristers studied in King’s Hall which later became part of Trinity College. Directors of Music have included Charles Villiers Stanford, Alan Gray, Raymond Leppard and Richard Marlow. Female voices were introduced in the 1980s by Richard Marlow, in a new departure for Cambridge choral music. Stephen Layton has been Director of Music since 2006.

Tickets: $30–$80

Parish Men’s Faith Group | The Immortal Diamond: Embracing Our True Self
Time: Tuesday, September 17 at 7:00 pm
Location: Parish Lounge

A core teaching of men’s spirituality is about the journey of letting go of our false self and coming to accept our true self. Our false self is the masks we wear, the personas we create, the unreal things by which we measure ourselves. Our presentation and discussion will explore how we continue the journey toward living from the true self, the image of likeness of God within.

Brian Pinter, Pastoral Associate and Fordham Prep religious studies faculty, will lead the discussion.

Scripture Class | A Voice Like Rushing Waters: The Book of Revelation
Time: Wednesday, September 18
Location: Gonzaga Meeting Room

The book of Revelation has inspired and confounded generations of Christians with its amazing imagery and narrative. Our discussion will seek to interpret this mysterious text as a call to resist powerful cultural forces antithetical to the Gospel. 

Brian Pinter, Pastoral Associate & Fordham Prep religious studies faculty, will lead the discussion.

More Than A Book Club - September Selection Book Discussion
Time: Thursday, September 19 at 2:00 pm
Location: Parish Lounge

September Selection: The Madonnas of Leningrad by Debra Dean

The ravages of age are eroding Marina’s grip on the everyday. An elderly Russian woman now living in America, she cannot hold on to fresh memories yet her distant past is preserved in her mind’s eye.

Vivid images of her youth in war-torn Leningrad arise unbidden, carrying her back to the terrible fall of 1941, when she was a tour guide at the Hermitage Museum. As the people braved starvation and a relentless German onslaught, Marina joined other staff members in removing the museum’s priceless masterpieces for safekeeping. As the Luftwaffe’s bombs pound the city, Marina built a personal Hermitage in her mind—a refuge that would stay buried deep within her, until she needed it once more.

8-Week Ignatian Retreat
Time: Tuesday, September 24
Location: Parish House

The quintessential spiritual retreat experience, based on the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius, requires a full 30-day separation from “all worldly cares” in order to pray and reflect in silence on one’s personal salvation journey, covering the redemptive narrative of the life of Christ. You may have heard of the “19th Annotation” retreat, or “Retreat in Daily Life,” in which the retreatant who cannot dedicate a full month away follows the same structure and dynamic but over the course of six months. To put it in simple quantitative terms, instead of six hours a day for a month, the retreatant dedicates one hour a day for six months.

This Fall we are offering an 8-week version of this powerful experience of retreat in daily life. The format consists of daily personal prayer (45 minutes), plus a weekly group meeting (one hour) for discussion and presentation of printed materials for the coming week. The eight weeks will cover the scope of the entire Spiritual Exercises.

The daily personal prayer will consist of spiritual exercises, aided by handout materials that introduce, explain, and guide the respective meditation.

For the weekly group meeting at the Parish House, we offer two possibilities: Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM, and Wednesday mornings at 11:00 AM. At the time of registration, each retreatant will choose the option that they prefer and will commit themselves to participating in that weekly meeting.

THE DATES
- Tuesdays at 7:00 PM: September 24, October 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, November 5, 12.
- Wednesdays at 11:00 AM: September 25, October 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, November 6, 13.

THE DIRECTOR
Mr. John Lantry will accompany the retreatants through the eight weeks. John has been a parishioner for 20 years. After retiring as a high school principal, he became Director of the Linwood Spiritual Center in Rhinebeck, NY. This Center is Ignatian in orientation and enjoys close association with the New York Jesuits. Upon moving to the city, John became Director of the St. Jean Baptiste Community Center, where he served for 11 years.

John has been a student of Ignatian spirituality at Linwood, and has taken further training at the Jesuit Retreat Centers in Guelf, Ontario, and Wernersville, PA. John has extensive experience of the Spiritual Exercises, both as retreatant and director.
