We are grateful for all those who volunteer their time and talents to sharing their faith with our children and youth. This year, in addition to two catechists who are being recognized by the Archdiocese for their service, our very gifted Director of Faith Formation, Amy Chapman is being honored as well. In the words of Susan Kay, the Director of the Office of Religious Education: “Because we are celebrating this Year of Faih, to mark the beginning of Vatican Council II and the anniversary of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, we are initiating the Gaudium et Spes award to acknowledge a catechetical leader who, with joy and hope, has given extraordinary service and shown great dedication to the Parish and the Archdiocese. Amy Chapman will be the recipient of this award. Amy is an exemplary DRE and, in my experience, a woman of great, genuine faith. We are thrilled to be able to give her the recognition she deserves.” CONGRATULATIONS ELIZABETH AND BEATRICE Congratulations also to two of our catechists, Elizabeth Wall and Beatrice Frederique, who have been chosen by the Archdiocese to receive awards in recognition of their service as catechists. Both women have served our Faith Formation program throughout their BC careers after teaching in their catechetical programs at home. Elizabeth, who teaches one of our third grade sections, has brought a wealth of experience and creativity to our program. Beatrice, currently one of our lead teachers in the fourth grade, is a wonderful veteran who has taught many of our first-time catechists the ropes. Congratulations to both women! BOOK DISCUSSION On June 2nd, there will be a discussion of Tattoos on the Heart by Fr. Gregory Boyle. This book, available in Spanish as well as English, contains essays about universal kinship and redemption, moving examples of the power of unconditional love and the importance of fighting despair. All are welcome to come to the upstairs living room of the parish offices on June 2nd at 11:15 to share their reactions to this book. GOOD CAUSES From time to time we receive a request from a parishioner or a BC student to advertise a “good cause” for which one is looking for financial or other kinds of support. This can take the form of a bake sale whose proceeds go to an immersion trip or some form of collection. Since we do not want to overwhelm our parishioners with “asks”, we have decided to add this “Good Causes” section that will give you the opportunity to decide whether you would like to support this good cause. Parishioner and Cantor, Michelle Abadia, whose artistry St. Ignatius has benefited from for many years, is asking support for a national tour which will give her the opportunity to share her musical gifts with a wider audience. If you’d like to learn more about Michelle’s hopes and dreams, you can go to the following link, http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/passionate-sightless-performer-goes-on-tour THIS W EEK’S CALENDAR Sunday, April 28th Tuesday, April 30th Wednesday, May 1st Friday, May 2nd Contemporary Music Ensemble – Upper Church Liturgy Meeting – Conference Room Transitions – Friary Room Parish Choir – Choir/Media Room Little Rock Bible – Lannon Chapel Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament – Lannon Chapel 3. 4:30 pm 7:15 pm 1:00 pm 7:15 pm 7:15 pm 12:45 pm Queridos Parroquianos, Como ustedes saben, hay muchas personas que contribuyen a la vida comunitaria en nuestra parroquia. Hemos tenido la buena fortuna de tener a Dan Robb como un miembro de nuestro equipo pastoral que ha funcionado como coordinador del programa de formación en fe para los niños de habla Español. Dan ha tomado la decisión dedicarse a su profesión como terapeuta trabajando con jóvenes. Me ha pedido que comparta con ustedes sus reflexiones. Como algunos de ustedes saben, He trabajado aquí en la parroquia como coordinador de la formación cristiana para esta comunidad y la comunidad angla. Quería que sepan que he tomado la decisión dimitir de esta posición. Empecé a asistir a la misa con esta comunidad en 2009, después de que había pasado dos años como voluntario en Tacna, Perú. Extrañé el espíritu y la amistad de todos allí. Tuve la gracia a volver a encontrar este espíritu en la gente de esta comunidad. Me ha ofrecido una oportunidad a aplicar mi pasión por el trabajo con niños y jóvenes, y por eso les agradezco. El hecho es que he estado haciendo otro trabajo. Trabajo como terapista para jovenes en Dorchester, y ha sido difícil a hacer los dos trabajos en una manera formal. Mi ultima función formal como coordinador será la primera comunión de nuestros niños el día 19 durante la Santa Misa. Pienso en sequir a venir a la Misa aquí y celebrar con ustedes. Ahora, planificamos que Amy Chapman va a coordinar todo lo que tiene que ver con el catecismo en Español para el proximo año. Gracias por la oportunidad a servirles en esta capacidad. Tengo ganas de servir esta comuidad en otras maneras en el futuro.
