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.
