Upcoming Events

FEBRUARY 6, 7:00PM

BECOME AN ASSOCIATE OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
We will be hosting an Information Night for those who are interested in learning more about being an Associate of the Blessed Sacrament on February 6th at 7 o’clock.

The Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament, the Order that has ministered at Saint Jean Baptiste since 1900, is a Roman Catholic religious Order of priests and brothers who center their lives on the Eucharist.

Associates of the Blessed Sacrament are the lay branch of the Order. Associates follow a Rule of Life similar to that of the Order, and partake in the spiritual life of the Order. The meeting will take place in the Eymard Room.

Please enter through the 76th street ramp (next to the Siena).


FEBRUARY 11, 12:00PM

DIVORCED AND REMARRIED CATHOLICS
Please invite your Catholic friends and family members who are divorced, or divorced and remarried, to attend an informal meeting at the church on Sunday, February 11th at noon.

We are attempting to reach out to Catholics who suffer the pain of separation and alienation from the community because they have divorced. We held a meeting like this in November of last year. It was a relaxed and fruitful meeting – a start in healing the separation.

Please reach out to your friends and relatives. Invite them to attend the 11 o’clock Mass. The meeting will take place in the rectory after the Mass. Please be our voice of welcome. Please be the Church’s hand reaching out to them.

Thank you.
