Southside Reconnect at The Monastery: St. Gemma

Celebrate St. Gemma Galgani at Southside Reconnect!

Father Justin Kerber, c.p. will give a short talk on the life and legacy of beloved mystic and daughter of Passion, St. Gemma Galgani. St. Gemma’s life, miracles, and intercessions continue to inspire.

Take the opportunity to visit the only shrine to St. Gemma Galgani which is in our church.

St. Gemma is a model for lay people who want to pray, who want to turn to God, for help and consolation in their worried lives - plagued by financial insecurity, broken homes, and emptiness - caused by the death of loved ones, the rejection felt by some handicap, and the frustration of the willing who are unable - in a society where the able are unwilling.

Southside Reconnect at The Monastery with Fr. Jim O'Shea, c.p.

Let’s get everyone together and recommit to our Southside community!

Inspired by the Holy Spirit and the season of Lent let’s have a conversation about how we can reconnect and restore The Monastery with the Southside community.

Father Jim O’Shea, founder of Reconnect Brooklyn, provincial of the Passionists will give a short talk followed by a question and answer session. The harder the questions, the better. Let’s challenge ourselves, get inspired, and grow in faith together as we explore where we are and where we want to go. There will be beautiful music played on The Monastery’s antique organ at the beginning and refreshments afterward.

Vocation Discernment Retreat

Vocation Discernment Retreat

Join the Passionist Nuns for their upcoming Vocation Discernment Retreat.

Do you wonder if you might have a call to Religious Life? Have you been seized by the love of Christ and have a desire to give your self completely to Him, to belong solely to Him?

Jesus invites you; "What are you looking for?" (Jn 1:38) He offers Himself as the decisive response to the longing deep within your heart.

Join the Passionist nuns on February 23rd for a day long retreat that will focus on discerning your vocation.

How beautiful it is to follow the Lord Jesus with an undivided heart. Do you want to keep Him company in His Passion? Do you have a yearning to be a radiant witness to His mercy and tenderness for all, especially for the suffering and the spiritually poor?

Do you have the affective, cultural, and spiritual maturity to live in solitude as well as in a close knit community? Do you have good physical health and psychological balance?

If you are an unmarried woman between the ages of 21-40, a practicing Roman Catholic in love with our Lord and His Church, and have answered "yes" to the above questions, please join us for a few days of discernment.
