Active Catholics Together (ACT) is open to both singles and couples 40 years of age and older. ACT is a socially-based group. As we journey together in a Christian atmosphere of faith, we strive to see God in all things and in all people — an Ignatian ideal. We work to build community with old friends, while also making new ones. ACT organizes two to three social activities a year.
If interested in our next activity, or to join the planning group, contact Sharon Nicola, ACT Ministry leader.

The purpose of the Men's Club is to be a social, service, and faith formation group for all men in the parish and school, and to build parish community through ongoing fellowship, service, and outreach. The Men’s Club meets regularly and sponsors service projects and social events to help members remain well-connected as a parish family. Monthly meetings are scheduled for the fourth Thursday of each month, September to May, with summer activities and service projects additionally scheduled.

If interested in joining Men's Club, contact Tim Welch, Men's Club ministry leader.


This group welcomes parishioners and other men throughout the Archdiocese. It provides a place to reflect on Scripture and the call of Jesus to each man individually as they engage in life’s challenges. We gather at 7:15AM for coffee, with a program beginning at 7:30AM on the second Saturday of each month, from September to June at the Loyola Jesuit Center.

A volunteer member prepares and explores a particular topic, ending with reflection questions that the group carries into silent prayer for 20-30 minutes. We gather again to share our personal reflections, then move next door to the chapel for Mass led by our chaplain. A $20 free-will donation is requested of those able to contribute, to cover the cost of the room, coffee and donuts. There is also an annual retreat.

If interested in joining, contact Gregory MacCrone, Men's Spirituality Minister.
