Super Typhoon Maysak
The week before Easter, Super Typhoon Maysak, with sustained winds of 160 mph, struck the islands of Micronesia. This was one of the strongest storms to ever hit the area and both of the Jesuit schools (Yap Catholic High School and Xavier High School in Chuuk) suffered wind and water damage. All students and staff are reported safe but Xavier in particular was hit hard. The estimated cost of repairs is $100,000.
For more than 70 years, New York Jesuits have served the people of Micronesia and today there are several New York Jesuits missioned to Xavier High School in Chuuk.
They need our support. Please consider a contribution to aid in the rebuilding effort. Donations can be brought to the Parish House. Checks should be made out to “Church of St. Ignatius Loyola” with Typhoon Relief on the memo line.
From the Pastor
I’m happy to announce that Cardinal Timothy Dolan has approved the Jesuit Provincial’s appointment of Fr. Thomas Feely, S.J., as temporary Administrator of the Parish.
Fr. Feely will take on this new position in mid-June, at the conclusion of my term as pastor.
This is good news!
The parish is blessed to have someone as capable and dedicated as Fr. Feely moving into this role, especially since he knows and loves the parish so well already.
Please join me in congratulating him on his appointment, and in thanking him for taking on this ministry.
Rev. George M. Witt, S.J.
Bach’s B Minor Mass
Wednesday, May 6th at 7:00 PM
Monumental, intricate, and full of insight into the widest spectrum of human experience, Bach’s B Minor Mass is widely considered the greatest composition in the Western classical canon. Although completed in 1749, the work was never performed in its entirety during the composer’s lifetime, and did not receive its first full performance until over 100 years later in 1859.
