Cabrini Coalition Meeting at SFDS

Today’s meeting takes place at St. Francis de Sales.

We meet on Mondays, following in the footsteps of activists like MLK who believed that if you don’t take your Sunday experience and convert it to action on Monday, your faith isn’t bearing fruit. #MoralMonday

Cabrini Coalition is an interfaith group formed and supported by three neighborhood churches (St. Francis De Sales Roman Catholic Church, The Brick Prespbyterian Church, and Church of the Living Hope), with additional support from local businesses, artists, and like-minded organizations uptown. Our mission is to follow in Mother Cabrini’s footsteps by offering practical and spiritual support to immigrants, particularly children, in our neighborhood. We are focused on working with East Harlem residents.

Leadership Breakfast with Father Tony

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THE SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL MAKE IN YOUR LIFE?

The Second Vatican Council was the most significant event that occurred in the Church in the last one thousand years. The Council has made a monumental difference on how we are called to live in the world by immersing ourselves in the issues of our times, the way we relate to one another and how we embrace all religious traditions . The Council was on the "back burner" for the past 40 years. When Pope Francis was elected on March 13, 2013 , he brought us back to the vision of the Council. He challenged us not to be afraid of change and not to resist the Holy Spirit who spoke to us through the Council. Let's get together to talk about how we can embrace the Council as the way of bringing new life and energy to Church , our personal lives and our parish community.

Birdwatching Walk in Central Park

We will meet at the Central Park Boathouse (just west of 5th Avenue and East 72nd Street, inside the park).

Participants are asked to bring bring their own binoculars, and a few pairs will be available to borrow if you don’t have any.

Mary Braza, an SFDS parishioner active in our Social Justice Ministry and avid birder, is leading us in another birdwatching walk in Central Park. Her Earth Day event in April was such a blast that we’re following up with another tour! Fall is peak season to seek out the 200+ species of birds that live in or migrate through Central Park. How many of God’s wonders will we find right here in our wonderful city of New York…
