Coffee Sunday in the Parish Hall after all Masses this weekend…

Join us for coffee, tea and punch for the following:

Ministry of Hospitality - New!

St. Ignatius Loyola parish is well known for having an atmosphere of welcome and hospitality. Recent studies tell us that Catholics want to feel like they belong to a welcoming worshipping community. The Ministry of Hospitality is also identified as one of the priorities of our Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan. After discernment of the needs of our own community our Parish Pastoral Planning Team has recommended that we invite interested parishioners - individuals and families- to form a new Ministry of Hospitality, greeting parishioners and visitors at each weekend mass. This ministry would not replace our capable ushers, who will continue to organize the offertory gifts, offertory collection and handout bulletins at the end of each mass.

We hope that you enjoyed our beginning efforts in the area of hospitality during Holy Week and Easter. If you did, please consider joining this ministry! We invite you to find out more by attending the Ministry of Hospitality Workshop on Saturday, April 29 from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 Noon in the parish hall. Please leave your name with one of the priests or Caroline Borcsok at the parish office, 905-820-1444.

Ministry Appreciation Cocktail Party…

In appreciation of the many volunteers who participate in our parish ministries throughout the year, we have sent invitations to our Annual Appreciation Cocktail Party on Thursday, April 27 at 7:00 p.m. Please RSVP to Carol at the office by e-mail or telephone, 905-820-1444.

ShareLife2017: Living the Gospel by helping the vulnerable in our society…

Tim and Donna met 25 years ago and have made the Friday and Saturday social nights at ‘Our Place’ a regular part of their lives. Their intellectual capacity is somewhat limited but they do maintain their own independent apartments. While Tim is currently caring for his aging mother following her recent surgery, Donna is able to support Tim by cooking meals and offering caring attention. As Tim overcomes some social shyness in his own life, he also takes cares of some of Donna’s daily needs with household chores, and working on the computer. The support role ShareLife plays enables ‘Our Place’ to be a caring partner to these vulnerable people. ShareLife funded agencies like ‘Our Place’ helps many intellectually disabled men and women through compassionate and caring support.

Thank you for your contributions to this year’s campaign! We have collected $86,642.71 toward our parish goal of $225,000. The next ShareLife Sunday is May 7, 2017. Please give generously.

Sacrament of First Holy Communion… The grade 2 students of All Saints School and the RCIC Program will be receiving the Sacrament of First Holy Communion this Sunday, April 23 at 2:00 p.m. The grade 2 students at St. Mark and St. Clare will receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion on Sunday, April 30 at 2:00 p.m. Please keep the children in your prayers as they receive Jesus for the first time.
