Hearty Breakfasts - Approximately four Sundays per year we invite our neighbors living on the streets and area homeless shelters to Bishops Hall so we can serve them with a hearty breakfast, from 8 until 9 a.m. Volunteers are always welcome to join our parish family as we put the hospitality of Christ into practice.

We proclaim Christ crucified and risen,
and invite you to join with us in ministry together in his name.

News and Readings:

Purity

As the flint stone, clarified into glass, no longer impedes the faculty of sight, but helps it, so the material particles raised in glory no longer confine, but seem to transmit and communicate the forces of the glorified Body to which they belong… Now in His resurrection He is His own true self, both in Body and Soul.

-Richard Meux Benson, SSJE (1824-1915)
Society of Saint John the Evangelist

In the Footsteps of St. Patrick

Join us on a journey back in time to visit places made sacred with the worship and ministry of St. Patrick and the early Celtic saints. On the first part of our pilgrimage, we’ll visit the famous high crosses at Monasterboice, say prayers in churches founded by St. Patrick in Downpatrick and Armagh, and walk the ancient historic sites at the Hill of Slane, the Hill of Tara, Navan Fort, and Newgrange.
