Pastoral Plan Parish Gatherings: You are Invited!

As part of the Archbishop’s five-year Pastoral Plan for our Archdiocese, we have been asked as a Parish to gather during this coming Lent to share our ideas and assess our practice about living as missionary disciples of Christ, about our community life together, and about the formation we need and provide to deepen our relationship with Christ and share it with others.
Our Lenten Series here at Saint Ignatius will begin in just a few weeks' time. You are invited to participate in this process of discernment. Your participation will make this a successful process!
As you enter the church this weekend, you will be given a small survey sheet asking about whether you would be willing to host a gathering at your home, and also what your choices are about meeting times and locations. Please take the time now to complete this survey and drop it in the collection basket today.
