BELONGING & COMMUNITY…CONTINUED at St. Ignatius

There has been an enthusiastic and creative response to the inquiry about belonging here at St. Ignatius.  Some of our parishioners have expressed interest in the following types of belonging:

  • Crafters serving the community (i.e. knitting/crocheting for the homeless)

  • Seniors arts & crafts or book group

  • Active adventures for seniors

  • Theology book discussion group

  • Scripture study/Bible study

  • Young Adults

  • Racial Equity & Faith

  • Faith & the Economy

  • Weekly gospel reflection group

 

Do you have other ideas?  Are you interested in something above?  Do you want to connect with people in your stage of life (newcomers, young adults, grandparents, parents with young kids, etc.) or even in your neighborhood (we have demographic data on St. Ignatius parishioners all around the metro area and in Vancouver, too)?  Let us know what you need and crave, and we will do our best to connect you with others who long for the same.  Who knows where it could lead?   The parish can offer resources, space, or a platform for bringing small groups together.  The options are endless, and the parish is happy to help in this work of building community.  These don’t have to be fancy, formal groups!  In fact, the early Church usually met in homes and today many small Christian Base Communities all over the world meet in humble environments where they apply the gospel to their circumstances and let the Spirit lead.  Creating real communities of belonging is important work. 

Send an email to Beth Schaller at bschaller@sipdx.org if you are interested in being part of a small group and let me know what kind of group you’re looking for.

SCAM EMAILS

Scam emails are being sent out in the Pastor's name!!


A few clues indicate this request is not from me. First, check the e-mail address (they use all different emails, just not mine)

Second, I don’t solicit donations via e-mail.

The perpetrators of these scams love to prey upon the loyal, the committed, the generous, and the elderly of our community. 


Whenever in doubt, please call the Parish Office.
