Would you consider joining our livestream team at St. Ignatius
Church? It means so much to many who are sheltering in
place to be able to participate in the Mass. Livestreaming
is easy and fun. No experience is necessary, but basic
computer skills are helpful. Training is provided.
Livestreamers arrive about 20-30 minutes early to the church’s
choir loft to turn on the equipment and schedule the video.
No heavy lifting required; no equipment to move. You can even
select how often you are scheduled: once a week,
twice a month, or more.
St. Ignatius Parish Church has suspended Children’s Liturgy for
now, but the parish is providing its families with access to the
free weekly “Children Celebrate! Liturgy of the Word” handouts
for children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade. Each
handout includes a short prayer, gospel explanation, fun activity
and family discussion questions.

Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, Bishop Soto has postponed all
Sacraments until further notice. Our children have been
preparing for First Eucharist all year and Confirmation the past
two years. The journey in arriving to this point has been filled
with reflection, prayer, and community. That journey will
just continue for a bit and that can never be a bad thing.
The gifts of those days, of receiving those Sacraments, will
happen and as soon as we know, we will inform you.
For those interested in visiting the sick and homebound, a
morning of reflection and formation will be held on October 12 in
the Church from 9 am to noon. Please contact Anne Tropeano for
more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This new Religious Education Program is for preschool children
(ages 3-5). This is a great opportunity for your child to learn

mass for 1 hour (9:30 am to 10:30 am). This program requires
parent participation and we
are also in great need of volunteers to facilitate and help.
Please let us know if you can help.
