ONE BOOK, ONE PARISH
Many of us in the parish were so moved by Pope Francis' Joy of the Gospel that the Pastoral
Council decided it would like to invite the whole parish to read it together over the next five
months. The second Sunday of each month, from December through April, will be Joy of the
Gospel Sunday. You can purchase copies of The Joy of the Gospel from
http://www.usccb.org or from Amazon. You can also download a free copy from the Vatican
website, http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/apost_exhortations/documents/papafrancesco_esortazione-ap_20131124_evangelii-gaudium.html. We also have created a page on
Facebook where you can add comments about the document as we read it together. Here is the
link: https://www.facebook.com/StIggysBC.
To help you pray and reflect with The Joy of the Gospel, we will be providing discussion
questions in the bulletin over the next five months. This week, we invite you to begin your
reading with these questions: In December we will be reading the Introduction and Chapter 1.
There will be a variety of opportunities for you to share your thoughts with other parishioners.
These will be outlined in the coming weeks.
1. How often do I experience the joy of the Gospel? How can a desire to protect my personal interests,
concerns, and possessions inhibit this joy?
2. What is my most recent encounter with God’s love? How does it give meaning to my life?
3. Pope Francis says the task of evangelization is “the source of authentic personal fulfillment.” Is that
how you view evangelization? Why or why not?
4. Can you recall a time when you accomplished something wonderful, only to realize that God was at
work and he enabled your success? How often do you tackle a difficult task, knowing that God will be at
your side to help you succeed?
5. How can I help my parish reach out to those who have not found faith in Jesus? Can I recount any
recent success in bringing someone outside the faith to St. Ignatius?

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.
If you are already a participant, your annual donation will be renewed as is, unless you desire to change
it or you need to change your information. For those of you who have not yet signed on, you can check
out the brochure on the parish website to find out more about the program. HTTP://BC.EDU/STIGNATIUS
Pledge cards are available at the entrances of the church or call the parish office to receive one. 617-5526102.
OUTREACH MINISTRIES
SHATTUCK HOLIDAY MEAL: THANK YOU to everyone who was involved in the
Meal. Tammy Scott was once again the Coordinator and we’re grateful for her
guidance. Thanks, too, to Crescent Ridge Dairy of Sharon that donated their awesome
egg nog. The standing ovation the servers receive from the Shelter Guests goes to all of you!
CHRISTMAS GIFT DRIVE: Gifts should be returned by this Sunday night (December 7th)
at 6PM. All the gifts will be picked up early in the week, so please be prompt with your
returns. On behalf of Ann Carmola, the Gift Drive Coordinator, and the Outreach
Ministries Commission members, thank you to the hundreds of you that have gifted
hundreds and hundreds of your neighbors with your care and generosity.
ADVENT PROGRAM WITH MARSHA MIRKIN
Once again, on December 13th, from 10am-noon Marsha Mirkin will be at St. Ignatius to
lead a
Bible Discussion. We will be studying the story of the prophet Elisha and the Shunammite
woman, a woman who knew how to allow the sacred into her life. We will see the transformation of a
prophet who learned that part of being God’s messenger was to care deeply for humankind. Through the
story we will face questions. How do we prepare ourselves to encounter what we understand as holy?
How do we welcome salvation, develop hope and a sense of possibility?
Christmas Reflections
Fr. Bob will raise the curtain again on a performance of Christmas Reflections that celebrates the true
meaning of Christmas through story, music and dance. Christmas Reflections weaves together new works and
favorites from A Dancer's Christmas with Irish Step dances choreographed by Helen O'Dwyer. The Cast
includes nearly 100 dancers of all ages, including students of the O'Dwyer School of Irish Dancing.
