Easter Sundays Outside the Walls

As we begin to return to the routine of our lives, what difference can our faith bring to renew the face of the earth? Will you be returning to your way of life as it once was? Or will you be transformed by the Risen One who breathes a spirit within us, and sends us out into our fragile, broken world to be sources of healing and wholeness?

Join Father Peter Gyves, SJ, MD for “Easter Sundays Outside the Walls” to gather for reflection and sharing as this time of pandemic and exile gives way to newness of life.
