A Year of Discernment

Hosted by The Life, Justice, and Peace Ministry of St Ignatius ParishPeace Mass | Immigration & Refugees
New Year’s Day, Thursday, January 1, at 10:00 a.m. Peace Mass calling for discernment on Immigration & Refugees.
The parishioners of St. Ignatius have stated that they hold as sacred the value of children and the vulnerable. As the Holy Family endured the flight to Egypt to escape threat, we at St. Ignatius seek to recognize the same distress in all who leave their homeland.The current crisis of refugees at the border of the U.S. and Mexico challenges us to see the faces of the Holy Family in our brothers and sisters who feel forced to flee danger, poverty and desperate circumstances.With the intention to discern just and compassionate action, practice the call to peace and commemorate the maternal protection of Mary, Patroness of the Americas, St. Ignatius Parish will celebrate a Peace Mass on January 1st.A special reflection will be oered by Sr. Susan Wells, SNJM, who serves as acase manager in international foster care for Catholic Community Services in Tacoma, WA.
After mass there will be refreshments available as well as hand-made tamales for sale from the women atTierra del Sol.
Please join us!
St. Ignatius Church is located at

3400 SE 43rd Ave.,
