The Young Adult Ministry of the Church of St. Francis of Assisi is hosting “Theology on Tap: Spiritual but Not Religious” on
Thursday November 7th
at 6:30 PM gathering, 7:00 PM talk
O’Reilly’s Pub, 2nd floor
54 West 31st Street
New York, NY 10001
“I’m spiritual, but not religious.” It’s an often heard self-description these days, but what does it mean? What is “religion,” anyway? And what is “spirituality”? Can you have one without the other?
Fr. William Beaudin, O.F.M., our speaker for the upcoming “Theology on Tap,” would argue that, yes, you can be spiritual without being religious and religious without being spiritual, but there are reasons to seek to be both.
SPECIAL $20.00 BUFFET
For this event, we have arranged for a special $20 buffet dinner (plus 20% tip) for anyone interested. Drinks not included.
The buffet will include:
Penne, Spinach & 4 Cheese (V)*
Onion Rings (V)
Roasted Brussel Sprouts (V)
Mixed Organic Green (V)
*(V) = vegetarian
Please Note: Ala carte dinner will not be available to order for this event.
Please come ready to pay $24.00 to the Church of St. Francis in cash, check or by Venmo if you will be ordering the buffet. Credit Cards will be accepted at the bar for your bar tab.
This is open to all young adults in their 20’s and 30’s.
The Church of St. Francis of Assisi will observe Veterans Day on Monday, November 11th, with one Mass at 11:30 AM.
There will no confessions and the church offices will be closed for the day.
We offer our thanks and appreciation to all those who have served our country in the armed forces, especially those who were injured in the line of duty. May your bravery and courage not go unrewarded!
Our annual All Souls Day Mass of Remembrance will be celebrated on:
Monday, November 4th at 7:00 PM
This is because All Souls Day falls on a Saturday and our special liturgy would otherwise conflict with our Saturday evening Vigil Masses for Sunday.
This annual liturgy is an opportunity to remember our loved one who we have lost. We invite everyone to bring a photo of your loved one which will be placed in the sanctuary during the Mass.
We know that many people in our community come to New York from other places in the country and around the world, and at times our members and visitors cannot travel home for the funeral of a loved one who has died. We hope this liturgy allows people to pray together with members of the Church and remember those lost at a Mass dedicated to commemorated our faithful departed.
Please join us for this special annual celebration.
Friday, November 1, is the Solemnity of All Saints.
In addition to our regular weekday Mass schedule (7:00, 7:45, 8:30, 11:30 AM; 12:30,
4:30, 5:30 PM), the 4:30 and 5:30 Masses on Thursday, October 31, will also be celebrated as Vigil Masses for All Saints Day.
We invite to take part in a Week of Prayer in honor of St. Jude:
Monday, October 21, through Friday, October 25,
at the 11:30 and 4:30 weekday Masses.
Devotions to St. Jude became popular in the United States because of the Great Depression, World War II, and the sufferings of ordinary people. St. Jude continues to be a beacon of hope to those who call him, no matter how desperate the need.
Envelopes are available at the entrances of the church for your intentions.
