News and Readings:


2015-04-01What if Jesus’ death on the cross is a continuation of Jesus teaching us? What if the crucifixion were that great and utterly gratuitous expression of God’s love for us showing us that it is possible for us to live as Jesus lived? I mean to live precisely as though death were not.

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.
