women and men from all classes of society to con$nue to follow his way to God, and his commitment to helping people become whole and holy. The life and liturgy of St. Mary Student Parish emerge from our convic$on that God is ac$ve in our world and that we can experience God’s presence and ac$on in our daily lives. As the great Jesuit paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin wrote, “God is not remote from us. He is at the point of my pen, my pick, my paintbrush, my needle, and my heart and my thoughts.”

Igna$an Spirituality is not merely an inward journey, much less a self-absorbed one. It aims to bring people closer to God and more deeply into the world - not away from it with gra$tude, passion, and humility. We desire as our first priority to ground our growth, our very being in the God who created us in love, to give love and to receive love. Our God gave us the gi's and abili$es we bring here, and God encourages us - calls us - to grow in these abili$es by using them not only for ourselves but for the wider world, especially for the wider world that suffers injus$ce, poverty, and oppression. In all these things, we are nourished by our Catholic faith, rooted in the Universal Church under the leadership of Pope Francis. We live in hope that God hears and answers our prayers as we strive to become what we ask of God in one of the great Eucharis$c Prayers of the Church.

This Igna$an spirituality embraces a way of discerning God’s presence in our everyday lives - and doing something about it - that was first taught by St. Igna$us of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits). Igna$us was a Spanish Soldier and aristocrat who discerned his calling a'er suffering nearly fatal wounds on the ba*lefield. He founded the Society of Jesus in 1540, instruc$ng the early Jesuits to go out and “find God in all things.” That is the signature spirituality of the Jesuits, and it is the spirituality that infuses Jesuit parishes. The path to spirituality begins with an invita$on to enter deeply into rela$onship with Jesus, so that the mind, heart, values, priori$es, and loves of Jesus might equally become our own. What are those values, priori$es, and loves? Igna$us would encourage us to consider what Jesus said and did. At the founda$on of Jesus’ life was prayer, a con$nuous search for how best to love as an authen$c human being before a loving God. Jesus preached forgiveness of sins, healed the sick and possessed, and gave hope to the poor, to those socially and economically outcast. Jesus spoke of joy, peace, jus$ce, and love; he summoned

A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS: VIGIL FOR IMMIGRANT FAMILIES In every Catholic church, a candle perpetually burns near the tabernacle, a reminder of the presence of the Body of Christ. As members of the Body of Christ, we join in this ancient tradi$on as we keep vigil with immigrant families—those separated at our southern border, over con$nents by forced migra$on, or torn apart by deporta$on, as many are here in our parish. Symbolized by the candle burning near the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the atrium, our St. Mary community con$nues to keep watch and pray. May we, the Body of Christ, be a light in the darkness.

Light in the Darkness: Vigil for Immigrant Families is a program of the Campaign for Hospitality. To learn more, please visit:

Through observance of the Lord’s commands, we shall experience the fullness of life. Living in conformity with God’s will frees us from all casuistry about good and evil. We are called to welcome God’s word and to let it take root in our hearts.



The advent of the age of salva$on is upon us; the deaf hear, the blind see, and those bowed down are raised up. The kingdom is made manifest around the Eucharis$c table, where rich and poor alike are invited to feast.

THIS BULLETIN IS FURNISHED TO THE PARISH WITHOUT CHARGE. The adver$sements that appear completely defray all publishing costs with which the church would otherwise be burdened. Please patronize these sponsors as a thank you for their kind generosity.
