Bishop Barres' Pastoral Letters

Please click to read: “Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam – For the Greater Glory of God”; a new pastoral letter from Bishop Barres introducing the Ignatian Year (May 20, 2021 – July 31, 2022).  The Ignatian Year begins on May 20, and concludes on July 21, 2022.   Several of our priests are working on a series of reflections that will come out over the course of the year that begin an exploration of the life and legacy of St. Ignatius, and will connect the Ignatian legacy with our legacy in 2021.
