Concerts at St. Ignatius, Park Avenue… An Update!
by K. Scott Warren, Director of Music Ministries

In a normal year, Concerts at St. Ignatius would be cruising through the first part of our season, with two or three productions already done, and we’d be looking forward to our Christmas festivities.  But nothing else is normal this year, and like all other arts organizations, we’ve had to make a few adjustments.

Weekly Wisdom
In his Wednesday, November 4th homily, Fr. Yesalonia challenges us to put our faith into action. "What do you believe? Do you stand up for it? Do you believe it? And, the more difficult question: Do you live it? ... In whatever circumstances we find ourselves, what do we do with our belief as a way to help others?"
Celebrating Women at St. Ignatius: Past, Present, Future

SAVE THE DATE—March 11, 2021
Recently, we announced that on March 11, 2021, our parish is having a special event to celebrate all of the women of the parish for their service to our parish family.
The evening will have two parts: first, we will be honoring four women who have given decades of extraordinary service to our parish. We will keep their names secret for now. Second, we will be giving our parish a unique chance to “meet” our women and “hear” their voices. How? We will be displaying their photos and sharing their reflections.

COME AND BE PHOTOGRAPHED—November 22 & December 2, 2020
Women of St. Ignatius! Come and be photographed! Click here for more information.
