Queer People of Faith Talking Circle: Possibilities

Join us for a time together in community talking on a central theme. The theme of this circle is "Possibilities." As Spring approaches, we will reflect on moments of blossoming and joy!
Novena of Grace
March 12-20, 2019, 12:30pm on the weekdays and 1pm on Sundays, Chapel of St. Ignatius
Take just one hour a day to attend a weekday liturgy, either here at the Chapel (Eucharist) or St. Joseph Church (contemplative prayer), or make the retreat online. Be inspired by the preaching of three presenters steeped in the Ignatian tradition and vision, offer up your deepest desires in prayer, and join a faith-filled community to pray together. Attend one, any or all of the nine days to experience God’s abundant grace! There is no cost for this program. More information can be found by clicking on Link above.
