THE PARISH SUPPORT PROGRAM Each year at this time, we ask you to consider how you are able to financially support the ministries of St. Ignatius throughout the coming year through The AMDG Parish Support Program. This program enhances our ability to project our income throughout the year and not have to worry about those Sundays and summers when many people are away from the parish due to the vagaries of weather, travel, vacations, etc. As our parish continues to grow, so also do our expenses. If you are a new parishioner or have never signed on to the program, we would be more than grateful if you would join the more than 500 families currently participating in the program and show your support for this remarkable parish. We are so grateful for the stewardship of these parishioners who contribute more than 70% of our operating income. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2. THIS SEASON M END A Q UARREL. SEE K O U T A FO RGO TTEN FRIEND .

La Página Hispana Del Escritorio del Padre Bob Queridos Parroquianos, Espero que hayan disfrutado de la celebraciones navideñas. Quería compartir con ustedes las palabras de un poema que me encanta como una expresión de la alegría de este hermoso tiempo del año litúrgico. Hoy grande gozo en el cielo todos tienen porque en un barrio del suelo nace Dios. ¡Que gran gozo y alegría tengo yo! Mas no nace solamente en Belén, nace donde hay un caiente corazón. ¡Que gran gozo y alegría tengo yo! Nace en mí, nace en cualquiera si hay amor nace donde hay verdadera comprensión ¡Que gran gozo y alegría tengo yo! Su presencia en nuestra parroquia me da gran gozo y alegría. Les deseo que nuestro Dios los bendiga con muchas bendiciones durante esta temporada Navideña. En el amor de Jesucristo y su Santa Madre, María Padre Bob DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH? ¿HABLA ESPAÑOL? The parish is presently organizing a program for Conversation Partners for anyone who would like help members of our Latino community improve their English. If you have some free time once a week to meet with a native Spanish speaker, please let Fr. Bob know. Or if you would to learn Spanish in the process, that would be possible too. 4.
