Vision of St. Ignatius Parish 

St. Ignatius parish is a joyful, spirit-filled community of faithful believers, unified by one baptism, rooted to one identity in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We are a faith community possessing an ever unfolding spirituality centered in the Eucharist and a prayers' life inclusive of many expressions of faith.  Under the guidance of our Blessed Mother Mary and St. Joseph, we are a journeying community sharing in the mission of Christ to establish God's kingdom of justice, peace and love committed to a loving and faithful service to our families and compassion for the poor.

Rest in Peace

God said to him, ‘You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you; and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?’ Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich in what matters to God" 
- Luke 12: 20-21

Parish Church Festival

Saturday, Sept. 10

 

Meals on Wheels for August 
There is a sign up sheet in the gathering space for those wishing to volunteer for this community service to assist those who are unable to prepare their own nourishment. We need to provide two teams of volunteers for each week day to cover the two routes. Since it’s summer, this is a great way to teach your children
about charity and the act of giving. If you have questions please contact
Sandy Holthaus 236-5604.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd will be in need of supplies to set up the Atrium-classroom. Next weekend, August 6th and 7th there will be a table in the gathering space with donation slips of items needed for this new program. Please take a slip or two and go on a treasure hunt many items that are needed are common household things you may already have and are looking to get rid of. Some of the items will have pictures to help you with the exact item.
All items for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd must be made of natural materials please try and stay away from plastic and manmade materials. The Atrium will be a work in progress so please turn in items as you find them. There are also a few things we can only order on-line. Please read your slip carefully. Also looking for a painter, seamstress and a wood worker to help with a few small items. Please contact Mary in the Youth Faith Formation office if you have any questions. We are so thankful for our generous and
supportive parishioners.
