Carlos Cuartas Memorial Mass and Reception
October 23, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Carlos Cuartas died on April 1, 2020. Because of the pandemic, there was not a Memorial Mass and celebration of Carlos’s unique life until now.
We invite you to a Memorial Mass at St. Ignatius Loyola Church (980 Park Avenue, NYC 10028) on Saturday, October 23, at 11:00 AM and to a reception in Wallace Hall afterward.
As a way of remembering Carlos, a group of his parishioner friends, also look forward to dedicating the Parish Lounge in honor of Carlos. Carlos knew this space well since it is the meeting place for many Parish ministries, including the Emmaus Bereavement Group, Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), LGBT Catholics and Friends, and the Parish Men’s Faith Group.
Over the next few months, the Parish Lounge will be renovated (fresh paint, new lighting, an improved A/V system, etc., and will become the Carlos Cuartas Parish Lounge). There will be a plaque of remembrance upon entering the lounge. We invite you as parishioners, co-ministers, and friends of Carlos to join us in creating this renovated space to honor Carlos.
We hope you can come to the Mass and reception. We hope you will also consider making a donation toward this project. Your support will make the renovated Parish Lounge a room that reflects the grace and style of Carlos!
