As a faith community in the Ignatian Jesuit tradition, we are especially mindful of our neighbors in need. We both practice hands-on charity and care for the sick and needy and advocacy against unjust structures in our society which oppress the poor and militate for war. In all of our outreach activities we collaborate with other Christian Churches and non-Christian Religious Congregations on the upper East Side of Manhattan and beyond.

Jubilee Year of Mercy
The Jubilee Year of Mercy, which concludes on November 20, 2016 — Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe — is, in the words of Pope Francis:
A time “for the church to take up the joyful call to mercy once more.
It is time to return to the basics and to bear the weaknesses and struggles of our brothers and sisters.”
