Our chaplain, Fr. Hugh Vincent Dyer, was interviewed last week on Relevant Radio's nationwide morning programming!
He discussed the new book Vision of Fatima, a re-release of the engaging adventure of a jet-setting Dominican priest and sculptor, the visionary who lives a a life of prayer and seclusion in the convent, and Our Lady's famous message of penance. (Fr. Hugh Vincent helped to have the book re-released!) It's currently an Amazon bestseller, ranked among the likes of Scott Hahn, Matthew Kelly, and Fr. Michael Gaitley.
Come to the Baltimore Frassati Fellowship's monthly night of worship at Saints Philip and James Church! Adore the Lord in the Eucharist with praise and worship. We'll lead a reflection on the dignity of life and have opportunities for confession.
Following worship, we'll have a "Minute to Win It" competition in the parish hall! Join us for tons of silly fun. Bring your A-game, y'all!
Parking is available in the parish parking lot on East 28th Street between St. Paul and North Charles Streets, across the street from the Saints Philip and James Rectory.

It’s that time of year again! Join us for our third annual gingerbread church competition, following holy hour on Saturday, December 17th!
Join us for this celebration on Monday, October 31st, Halloween Night, at 7:30 p.m. in the main church! This prayer celebration of all the holy men and women saints of history will include readings from the lives and writings of the saints, sung musical interludes, chanting of the Church's Night Prayer, and a candlelight procession. Come join us for this historical event as we reclaim Halloween for what it truly is: a Catholic holy day, a celebration of All Hallows' Eve (All Saints' Eve)! The service will be followed by a reception with light sweet refreshments in the church hall immediately afterwards.
Crisely Melecio-Zambrano and Debora Green are part of the L'Arche community of greater Washington, D.C., and will be speaking about the importance of community.
L’Arche is an inter-denominational Christian community that welcomes people of all backgrounds to share life together. Community life is centered around four communal homes; each home has 16 members who have intellectual disabilities, known as “core people.” Each community member is encouraged to discover and deepen his or her spiritual life and live it according to his or her particular faith and tradition. Those who have no religious affiliation are also welcomed and respected in their freedom of conscience.
Debora Green is a core member in her community, and Crisely is a live-in assistant and the home life leader in her community. Crisely will give an introduction of L'Arche and then will ask Debora questions about her community and experiences living at L'Arche.
Happy 1/2 hour begins at 7 p.m., but many people arrive at 6:30 p.m. for dinner. The evening's speaker will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. for the presentation.
Our Frassati Night speaker for this month will be Chris McCullough, Director of Evangelization and Faith Formation at the Cathedral of Mary, Our Queen! His talk is a continuation of our aforementioned Frassati Night talks centered around the Year of Mercy.
