I have the right to worship as a Catholic and invite people to join me. There is no chapel space in the Capital building, and there shouldn’t be. But, when I am serving as chaplain of the US House of Representatives, I am surrendering my constitutional right to pray my way because I am in service to the people for whom I am serving. ~ Fr. Patrick Conroy, SJ

In the midst of uncertainty with the ever-changing landscape of the Corona Virus, and as we adjust to new normal of 'sheltering in place' and 'social distancing', we are reminded to be centered on God and know that Christ is with us.
