Saturday, October 29 – following the 5:00 Mass

Join us as we mark the celebration of the ancient Celtic harvest festival, All Hallows Eve, considered a “thin time” when the veil between this world and the next was seen to be  especially permeable, and bonfires were lit to keep away unfriendly, mischievous spirits. At the end of the 5:00 Mass next Saturday we will dance and sing around a fire at the front door of the church. Join us on this special day.          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Are you or is someone you know: Looking for something to believe in with a desire to learn more about the Catholic faith?  A Christian of another denomination who wishes to enter into Full Communion with the Catholic Church?  A Baptized Catholic who never received the Sacrament of Eucharist or Confirmation?

    St. Ignatius Martyr’s RCIA is the place to make these wishes come true! Our sessions resume on September 19, 2016.   Classes meet on Monday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00 P.M.
