The most local and powerful way of impacting political change is to be involved in the party caucuses. The US Catholic Bishops have prepared several resolutions that may be presented for discussion and acceptance at the caucus.

Vision of our Parish of St. Ignatius
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 prayer 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.

Catholic Services Appeal

“Seek first the Kingdom of God” (Matthew 6:24—34)

If you have not made your contribution to the 2014 Catholic Services Appeal, please consider doing so this weekend. If you’ve misplaced your Appeal envelope that was mailed to your home, and to give everyone an oppor- tunity to participate, Appeal contribution envelopes are found in the gathering space. One pledge can make a difference, especially when combined with all of the other pledges made throughout our local church. And, when our parish reaches its goal, 25% of all funds received will be returned for use to support ministries in our parish. Please prayerfully consider providing your financial support to the Catholic Services Appeal. You can and will make a difference. It is important to know that contributions to the Catholic Services Appeal will be used for the benefit of designated ministries of the Appeal and for no other purposes. Visit the new Catholic Services Appeal Foundation web site at for more information.

Divine Mercy Sunday

On Good Friday we begin to recite a Novena for nine (9) days, along with praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet, to prepare for “Mercy Sunday”. Divine Mercy Sunday is April 27th. Jesus revealed God’s great mercy to Sister Faustina, a young uneducated Polish nun. His message is a reminder of what has been taught through scripture and tradition, that God is merciful and forgiving and that we should also show mercy and forgiveness. This devotion will lead us to a deeper understanding and appreciation that God’s love for us is unlimited and available to everyone - especially the greatest sinners. God wants us to realize that His mercy is greater than our sins, and with trust we can call upon Him, receive His mercy and allow it to flow through us to others. This is the message we call to mind in this devotion.


webassets/JCcross2.jpg“It is not that I want merely to be called a Christian, but to actually be one. Yes, if I prove to be one, then I can have the name...Come fire, cross, battling with wild beasts, wrenching of bones, mangling of limbs, crushing of my whole body, cruel tortures of the Devil--Only let me get to Jesus Christ!” 
– St. Ignatius of Antioch

Blood Pressure MonitoringStethoscope
Last Sunday each month
Health Ministry will begin doing blood pressure checks after the 8:30 and 10:30 masses the last Sunday of the month.  Stop by the site in the Gathering Space and have your blood pressure checked. It is important to know these numbers. High blood pressure can go undetected because there usually are no symptoms. High blood pressure can lead to heart disease, stroke, and kidney damage.
