Special Opportunities


Gospel of St. Mark

Five Thursday Evenings during the Easter Season
April 19, 26, May 3, 17, 24

Note the Date Change.

Join Fr. James Villa, OFM for five Thursday evenings (April 19, 26, May 3, 17, 24) in the Lower Church 7:00 - 8:30 PM to explore the Gospel of St. Mark.

Fr. Villa, a Scripture teacher, will lead us to an understanding and explanation of the Gospel of St. Mark which is used this Liturgical Year B in our Lectionary. 

The Gospel of St. Mark is the second book in the New Testament, one of the four Gospels. Its traditional author is a man named John Mark, a companion of St. Peter, who wrote the Gospel using Peter’s eyewitness accounts.

The Gospel of Mark is 16 chapters long, shorter than the other three Gospels. It is considered by most scholars to be the first of the four Gospels written with a date between 50 and 70 CE.  It was likely written from Rome to Romans, but more broadly, Gentiles.

The purpose of the Gospel is to present Jesus Christ to Gentiles and to encourage believers to endure and persevere in the face of persecution and perhaps even martyrdom.  The emphasis of St. Mark revolves around significant events in the life of Christ, such as his crucifixion and suffering. Jesus as teacher and his followers as disciples are also key to the Gospel’s message.

The text for the course will be the New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE) which can be purchased at the Parish Office or on the first night of class.
The Bible app, which offers the NABRE, is free.

See the flyer.


A Centennial Franciscan Retreat Experience

Thursday, August 9 - Friday, August 17

Fr. André will be directing a retreat focusing on St. Bonaventure’s Journey into God: August 9-17 at the Mount Alvernia Retreat House in Wappingers Falls.

The retreat will open with a presentation on the life of St. Bonaventure, born eight centuries ago. Each day of the retreat will be dedicated to one of the chapters of The Journey. Every day includes a balance of instruction on the text, periods for reading, and personal and communal participation in the Eucharist, Morning and Evening Prayer.

You can get complete information online, view the online brochure, or stop by the rectory and ask for a brochure.
