2020 Isaac Hecker Award For Social Justice
Fr. Bryan Massingale has been chosen as the 2020 recipient of the Isaac Hecker Award for Social Justice! He will be at the Paulist Center to accept the Award on Saturday, November 13th at the 5pm Mass. His reputation as a theologian and advocate for a truly inclusive Church is undisputed and has prompted some to call him a modern prophet. This year’s intense focus on justice in America has made Fr. Bryan a recognized voice and face of the call for racial and LGBTQ+ justice and inclusion in the whole of society. Please mark the date and join us in extending a warm Paulist Center welcome to Fr. Bryan in November!

Preparation For The Sacrament Of Matrimony
As we move out of our pandemic related isolation, young couples may be trying to figure out a plan of action to celebrate the Sacrament of Matrimony in the not too distant future. Fr. Chuck is happy to chat about the process and expectations. There is more to the process than just attending a Transformed in Love session.
