Embracing God's Gifts - May 28
Our gay and lesbian community invites you to join them for prayer and fellowship at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28, in the parish offices at 805 N. Calvert Street. As members of Christ’s Body, the Church, we are called to acknowledge the diverse expressions of human sexuality found within the human family. Our ministry, Embracing God’s Gifts, is a movement that recognizes these gifts and incorporates them into the life of our parish. Our hope and mission is to create opportunities for spiritual growth, openness to diverse individuals, and promotion of community among our members while being informed by Church teaching. We achieve these goals through prayer, fostering support, maintaining communications and encouraging social activities. All parishioners who are sensitive and compassionate are welcome to share in this movement. Join us on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. For more information, contact Gordon Creamer.
Prayer Shawl Ministry - May 29
All are invited to participate in our new Prayer Shawl Ministry which will be meeting next on Wednesday, May 29 in the parish offices. This group is open to anyone who knits or crochets, or would like to learn how. The prayer shawls, which are knitted or crocheted while the person prays for the recipient, are given to those who are sick, homebound, or otherwise in need. For more information, contact Duarte Aguiar in the parish office.
Holy Hour of Adoration - May 30
All are invited to spend time with Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament on the last Thursday of every month starting at 6pm. This is a great way to be face to face with Jesus and to sit in silent prayer.
Loaves & Fishes Volunteer Meeting - June 2
For many years through our Loaves & Fishes ministry, hot soup, sandwiches, fruit and coffee have been prepared and delivered to people living on the streets of downtown Baltimore every weekend during the cold winter months. Since hunger does not respect the seasons, we are now expanding the program on Sundays to include the summer months, distributing cold water, sandwiches, fruit and snacks. In order to do this, we have expanded our pool of volunteers, recognizing that there are numerous demands on people’s time during the summer. Being a Loaves & Fishes volunteer is extremely rewarding, yet the demands are actually quite limited and the schedule is flexible. The summer program will begin on June 16; there will be a meeting of all volunteers after the 10:30 Mass on Sunday, June 2. For more information, please contact VincentTobin or Amy Petkovsek.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact Catherine Young.

On Thursday, June 13 at 7:30 p.m. there will be a Justice and Peace committee meeting in Ignatian Hall to discuss several special projects which the parish will be focusing on over the next several months, including the Bread for the World campaign and John Lurangwa’s Asylee project.

Women of the New Testament - June 18
Women of the New Testament explores the diverse roles of women in the early church by studying and discussing the New Testament, other writings and practices of the early church, and scholarly commentary on these sources. In the light of this process, the group -- women and men -- pray to discern the roles to which women (and men) are being called in the contemporary church. All are invited to join us in Ignatian Hall at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18, and on the third Tuesday of every month (except December). We are currently reading "Back to the Well" by Frances Taylor Gench. For more information or to sign up, contact us.
