Community Connections

Want an easy way to meet people? Our meetings are open to anyone who would like to work on any aspect of parish life or who would like to help plan the various events to build our parish community, including appreciation events for volunteers and the annual fall parish celebration. The commission meetings are every second Wednesday of the month at 7:15 p.m. in the parish offi ces. (There are three subgroups of this commission, which meet on a regular basis: the Hospitality Group , Technology & Communications Group, and Logistics Group).

• Hospitality Group: As you've nibbled on pastry and sipped punch at various social gatherings at St. Ignatius, have you ever wondered who made it all possible? Most likely the Hospitality Group has been hard at work. We provide hospitality and support for events during the year, most notably the reception following the Easter Vigil. Helping to open our parish home to the community, we welcome all willing newcomers (of either gender). Contact: Helena Alfonzo,
Time commitment: 5-6 events/year, each approximately 2-4 hours

 Logistics Group: If you love to plan and organize, this group is for you! Providing logistical planning and support for events related to parish-wide community building events, such as the yearly volunteer opportunity weekend. All levels of experience are welcome.
