St. Ignatius Volunteer Opportunity with Arden Arcade HART
In early December, a small group of St. Ignatius parishioners attended the Arden Arcade HART (Homeless Assistance Resource Team) Open House. As a first step to assist those experiencing homelessness, some in the group have signed up for volunteer shifts at two winter shelters in January. We encourage other parishioners to join us in this effort. If you are interested, see details and sign up for one or more shifts on the HART sign-up website. If possible, try to join with others from St. Ignatius. When you complete your service, send an email note to Joe Symkowick at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then connect as a group in the new year.
Due to the earlier onset of the flu season this year, the diocese has recommended the following precautions to prevent further spread of illness among us:
• The use of the communion cup is temporarily suspended.
• Receive the Body of Christ in the hand (although receiving on the tongue is still permitted)
• Refrain from shaking hands
(a “nod” or elbow bump is allowed.)
• Refrain from holding hands during the Our Father
• Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion will cleanse their hands with hand sanitizer before distributing communion.
And most importantly: the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday or other Holy Days does not apply to those who are sick. If you are sick, stay home and take care of yourself, and do not risk spreading illness to your Brothers and Sisters.

Calling all Brother Knights to join us the second Saturday of each month from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. to assist Saint Ignatius with some light duty chores and projects around the parish center and school.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Dedication Ceremony on Sunday, August 25th. Our community came together as our new school and parish buildings were blessed by Bishop Soto. After the dedication, families enjoyed a meal together and were able to tour the new facilities. It was a beautiful day, and we hope everyone enjoyed it. We are truly blessed.
Grateful for our past
Hopeful in our future
