2014 Presenters and Theme

St. Ignatius Parish is excited to announce this year’s Novena presenters and theme. We welcome Bishop Carlos Sevilla, SJ, who works closely with migrant workers in Yakima, WA, Jeremy Marks, former Pastoral Associate at St. André Bessette Catholic Church, and St. Ignatius parishioner Jeannette Grimaldi. They will give reflections on this year’s theme: Hearts that Hunger: A Conversation with Our God from March 5-13. We’re eagerly anticipating the Novena kickoff in three weeks!

What is a Novena?

The Novena of Grace is a 9-day retreat in everyday life. It gives us an opportunity during Lent to sink down into a deeper reality where we can build true intimacy with God. If you are hungry for spiritual nourishment, eager for relevant spiritual wisdom, or longing for companionship in prayer, the Novena of Grace is for you. Join us as we humbly sing and pray with St. Francis Xavier for 9 days for our hearts deepest desires.

BLESSINGS 

 At the end of every Mass except those on the last day, you may come forward for an individual blessing with a Jesuit vow crucifix. Simply come to a person holding the cross and ask for a specific gift from God. The person will put the crucifix in your hands and pray for the grace you request. Some ask for healing from a serious illness, addiction, or a broken heart. Others ask for employment or world peace. There is no limit so freely ask your heart’s deepest desire.

FREEWILL OFFERING

We rely on your generosity for the continuation of this beautiful tradition. Envelopes and a basket are located on Mary’s altar, and a collection is taken on the last day. There is also a collection jar in the vestibule or you can make a donation online.
