Welcome Back…Coffee Sunday/FORGED Young Adult Ministry…

As we begin another year of ministry, we welcome you to join us after mass for coffee, tea and cookies in our parish hall this weekend. While we will not be holding a Ministry Fair this fall, we are inviting each of you to consider offering your gifts and talents for one of the ministries listed on the front cover of our parish bulletin. In this way we strive to fully live out our parish mission statement:

St. Ignatius Loyola Parish is a welcoming and diverse Roman Catholic community of faith that, through celebration of our many gifts and talents, strives to build our lives in the image of Christ. We do so through our commitment to loving service of one another and of our broader community, all "for the greater glory of God."

We also welcome young adult representatives to speak about FORGED, our new Young Adult Ministry, after communion at each mass this weekend. This new ministry is offered in conjunction with Merciful Redeemer and St. Christopher parishes here in Mississauga.

“FORGED” Young Adult Ministry (18-35 years) …

Do you want to learn about your Catholic faith? Are you looking to meet new people? Are you looking for a Catholic community to develop friendships that can support you and keep you accountable for your actions? Young Adults from our Church St. Ignatius Loyola and Merciful Redeemer Parish will be collaborating as one Young Adult Ministry and will be meeting at 7:00 p.m. every 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the Month at St. Ignatius and at Merciful Redeemer. Our opening meeting of the year will be at Merciful Redeemer Parish on September 26 at 7:00 p.m. Come and see! Thank you!

Sunday Noon Choir…

“Those who sing pray twice,” an endeared expression from St. Augustine. We welcome you to take part in this sentiment by joining our 12:00 Noon choir. Rehearsals are every 2nd Wednesday evening…and you need not be able to read music. All voices are welcome, and we would be delighted to have you join in leading the liturgy in music. For more information, please contact Mark Linsao after the mass or through the parish office.

Beginning on September 23, the Liturgy of the Word with Children Program will resume at both the 10:30 am and the 12:00 Noon masses. We need more volunteers especially for the Noon mass, and invite interested adults (especially teachers - potential, active or retired) and senior high school students (in Grades 11 or 12) to consider joining this important ministry of service to the children of our parish. The content and materials are provided, and a rotating schedule gives you the flexibility to participate as you are able. A short training meeting for all volunteers will be held on Saturday, September 22 at 10:00 a.m. in the parish hall. Please speak with Fr. Tim if you are interested or leave your contact info in the parish office.

Little Rock Bible Study - PSALMS II

The Book of the Psalms is a unique collection of the song-prayers of Israel. To study Psalms is to study prayer and ultimately to enter into prayer. The study will challenge participants to reflect on their own prayer and life experiences. Psalms II focuses on a selection of twenty-eight psalms divided into three categories: Royal Psalms, Psalms of Lament and Psalms of Declarative Praise. The Royal Psalms reflect the belief in ancient Israel that the king was “anointed” by God to be “the instrument of God's concern for the people”. Psalms of lament express the sorrow of the soul in distress and of the individual's and the community's need to turn to God in order to be healed or rescued. Psalms of Declarative Praise are prayers of thanksgiving that praise God for rescue or healing from dire situations. We begin this 7-week study on Thursday, September 27 at 7:00 p.m. in the parish hall. Registration is $20 per participant. All are welcome!

Life Chain - Next Sunday, September 30…

Please join us for Life Chain next Sunday, September 30 after the 12:00 Noon mass (1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m.) right outside our church on Burnhamthorpe Rd. West. Life Chain is a prayerful, peaceful, powerful witness to the evil of abortion and to the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception. It is for one hour on one day of the year in cities and towns across Canada. Please join us on Sunday, September 30!
