The Shepherds’ Trust Annual Collection: November 18/19

As members of our Catholic community, we regularly benefit from the tireless service of our priests. As we celebrate the 175th anniversary of our Archdiocese, we honour the men who have been instruments of the “Foundations of our Faith”. Called by God and ordained to care for His people, our priests serve our families, in churches, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, missions and on the streets. The Shepherds’ Trust ensures our priests, including our former pastor Msgr. Joseph Shiels, can live their retirement years with dignity.

The Shepherds’ Trust collection will take place in all parishes in the Archdiocese next weekend, and a copy of the Annual Newsletter is included inside today’s bulletin. This fund does more than just support our priests in their retirement years; it is a tangible way to care for those who always cared for us and give thanks for the blessings we have received through them. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Parish Family Pasta Dinner – Saturday, November 18

Thank you to five of our best Italian cooks in the parish who have again volunteered to make their home-made Italian sauce with penne pasta for this popular parish event on Saturday, November 18 after the 5:00 p.m. Mass. We will also have salad, fresh buns and dessert with coffee and tea. Special guest entertainers will regale us with Italian songs and melodies. Thanks to the Knights of Columbus who will serve the dinner and organize the evening. Tickets $12 Adults, $6 Children. Buy your tickets early – it’s always a sell out!

Confirmation Preparation Programme Begins!

Grade 7 students in our parish schools have already received their Confirmation Registration forms through the school and are invited to the Registration/Enrollment Evening on either Tuesday, December 5 OR Wednesday, December 6 for Registration in the parish hall at 6:30 p.m. followed by the meeting at 7:00 p.m. Candidates, parents/ guardians, and sponsors are asked to attend.

For those in Grades 7 who are not enrolled in our parish Catholic schools (e.g. Public-School Students, Private School Students), are asked to pick up registration materials at our parish office in the coming weeks. Classes for those not enrolled in our Catholic schools will begin in late January on Thursday afternoons from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the chapel area.

Any older youth or adults wishing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in May 2018 are asked to contact Fr. Charles as soon as possible.

2018 Offertory Envelopes/Pre-Authorized Giving…

Offertory envelopes for 2018 are available for pick up in the vestibule. Please continue to include your first and last name and address (or an address label) on the first 3 envelopes. Your new envelope number will be recorded so there is no need to search for your 2017 envelope box.

If you are not currently registered in the parish and wish to use Offertory envelopes, fill out the parish registration form and indicate the envelope number you have taken and return the form to the parish office.

I thank those who are currently use Pre-Authorized Giving (PAG) here at the parish and remind them to pick up a box of 2018 envelopes for the special collection envelopes which are not part of PAG. I also use PAG, and would encourage this for others - especially for those who are away from the parish on a seasonal basis. Pre-Authorized Giving (PAG) allows families and individuals to specify a monthly donation amount to the parish, and have this amount directly withdrawn from their bank account through a pre-authorized debit. PAG sign up brochures are available next to the 2018 Offertory envelopes. Thank you for considering PAG!

Eternal Rest Grant unto Them O Lord…

Throughout November the Church’s tradition of praying for our deceased relatives and friends will be observed at St. Ignatius Loyola Parish by offering of all Saturday evening and Sunday Masses for our beloved relatives and friends. Again, this year you are asked to record the names of those you wish remembered on the envelopes provided for that purpose (available at the doors of the church) and to place your envelope in the basket near the altar where this Basket of Remembrance will remain throughout November.
