Papal Charities Second Collection This Weekend May 20/21…

When a natural disaster strikes a nation anywhere in the world, many countries rush in food, medicine, blankets, money and trained people. Prominent among such aid is the financial help offered by the Holy Father through your contributions of Papal Charities. In the name of Catholics everywhere, he displays Christ’s love and compassion for those who suffer. Each year at this time, Canadian Catholics are asked to give generously to this papal collection which is passed on to the Holy Father for his use among those stricken by natural disasters.

ShareLife2017: Living the Gospel by caring for the elderly…

“Words cannot convey our gratitude to Elizabeth and to the Society of Sharing for giving our mother a new meaning to her life. Before the friendly visit program started, our mother was very depressed and unmotivated. However, her life changed when Elizabeth started to visit her. Elizabeth is a very kind, energetic and enthusiastic volunteer and her hobby is artwork. She decided to share her talent with our mother and has been giving her art lessons in acrylic painting. The intellectual stimulation has been tremendous and, as a result, has enhanced her health and her quality of life as she relaxes and focuses on her art projects. Thank you again, for all your support.” Last year ShareLife-supported agencies provided outreach programs that met the needs of over 2,200 seniors.

Thank you for your contributions to this year’s campaign – we have now gratefully received $148,160 towards our parish goal of $225,000! The Next ShareLife Sunday is June 4, 2017.

25TH Anniversary Celebration - Thank you

Thank you to so many who helped me mark my Silver Jubilee as a priest on Sunday May 7 at the Noon mass and reception afterwards in the parish hall. I am truly blessed to be the pastor of St. Ignatius Loyola Parish, and ask your continued prayers as I seek to model my ministry on the example of Jesus our Good Shepherd.

A big thank you to those who organized and participated in the Mass of Thanksgiving: our hospitality ministry, our ushers, the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus, our altar servers, Eucharistic ministers, readers and especially our parish choirs under the direction of Mark Linsao, as well as our soloists and accompanists: Pat and Roger Brown, Denise Oucharek and Anthony Bastianon and Tamara Hrycak.

Special thanks to Caroline Borcsok who co-ordinated the reception in the parish hall, and to those who worked with her: Anne-Marie Bauer, Rose Bilak, Chico Bolivar, Mike Borcsok, Joan Cabri, Olga Calderon, Carol and Brian Dewar, Theresa Fontaine, Marian and David Foster, Lilibeth Inocencio, Rodette Machado, Claudina Mannick, Tina Mallozzi.

Hall Foyer Upgrades…

With our new parking lot we have noticed an increase in traffic through our parish hall foyer into the church. We have just completed the following renovations to this area of our church:

We hope you like the results as we improve this area of our church to make it more accessible and welcoming!

Water Testing of Roof …

Our heavy rains this spring have resulted in some new water damage along the south part of the church roof and the walls of our church. We are currently undertaking investigations as to whether it is part of the flat roof replacement done last spring, or if it results from ongoing problems in our 30 year old peaked roof. We will keep you posted!
