Lectures at St. Ignatius 2021

Save the Dates! | “Catholic Women: Agents of Peace and Trust in the Church and the World”

I am pleased to announce our parish lecture series for 2021, and I encourage all to save the dates!

The United Nations has designated 2021 The International Year of Peace and Trust. We have unapologetically coopted this theme for our annual lecture series, enlarging on the title in order to focus on the energies, talents, and contributions of Catholic women as agents of peace and trust in the Church and the world.
The four lectures will offer us extraordinary insights into critical areas of public service where Catholic women are taking leadership roles, changing lives, inspiring their colleagues, and living the call to discipleship.

Our speakers will be informative, personal, inspiring. All have generously and enthusiastically agreed to share their expertise, their experience, and their faith as agents of peace and trust. The pressing analysis of, and conversation on, health care (both local and global) and homelessness and the changing environment will be presented.

Prior to each lecture, the weekly parish eNewsletter will carry a more fulsome introduction to the speaker(s) and topic of the evening. Here below is the series in outline.

1. Tuesday, January 26, 2021

The lectures will begin at 7:00 PM, in Wallace Hall (limit 50 persons) and livestreamed.

In addition to the four lectures of the series, a separate program for the annual Laetare Lecture is being organized by an ad hoc committee. This will coincide with International Women’s Day in March.

I am certain that our 2021 Lectures at Saint Ignatius Park Avenue will enlighten our minds and brighten our spirits.

Church of St. Ignatius Loyola A/V Appeal

On Sunday, June 7th, Fr. Yesalonia announced an ambitious expansion of our livestream capabilities at the parish.

Daily Mass will continue to livestream from the Lady Chapel every day at 5:30 PM.

Later this summer, we will have the capability to livestream Sunday Mass from Church. Additionally, screens will be installed in the Church and so that pre-recorded music can be broadcast into the Church during services.

Eventually, services and events will be livestreamed from the Lady Chapel, the Church, and Wallace Hall.

Work on this project in the Church will commence later this summer.

Please support this important initiative, which has been budgeted at $350,000.

Donations can be made here.
