THE NOVENA OF GRACE
Beauty and Brokenness: Blessed by a Novena of Grace
Join us for the Novena of Grace during this most unusual year. Billy Biegler, SJ will preside and present, with additional reflections throughout the nine days from Joseph and Grace Byrd, Jeanette Grimaldi, Dan Beseau, Kevin Jeans Gail and Sue Brent, Beth Schaller, Jim Peck, and Fernando Serna.
In-person Masses every day at Noon, except Sunday, March 7 at 10:30am
Sign up to attend through the St. Ignatius Church website. (Use the Sunday Mass sign up button above for each Mass)
Due to the pandemic, we won’t have a blessing ritual with crosses at the conclusion of Mass. Rather, an alternative blessing prayer will be given by Fr. Billy as he sends us forth each day.

I pray that you are finding joy these days. Here are a few items of interest to you and your parish.
1. The passage of the Global Childhood Thrive Act (GCTA) is a cause for celebration. Catholic Relief Services, through its recently-established CRS Local Chapters, has Led the Way in successfully advocating for its passage in 2020.
