ADULT FAITH FORMATION
Please join the Word commission for a Special Advent Presentation! Let us journey with Mary as we prepare for Christ's coming at Christmas. Two sessions of "Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother" presented by Dr. Sri of Ascension Press will be shown on DVD in Conlan Hall on Tuesday, November 30, @ 6:30 p.m., & Tuesday, December 7, @ 6:30 p.m. Mark your calendars for these special Advent presentations and time of sharing. Masks will be worn, and distancing observed for these in-person events. All are welcome for one or both evenings!
St. Ignatius is excited to announce that we have purchased a parish subscription to FORMED, now available to all parishioners! As we begin a new liturgical year, this online resource can help all parishioners to deepen their knowledge and enthusiasm about the faith. FORMED is an on-demand digital resource with movies, videos, Bible studies, audiobooks, talks, and more! There are resources for adults, children, teens, and young adults covering just about any Catholic topic. I like to call it, "Catholic Netflix."
Why not try it out? There's so much to enjoy! Registering is very easy. Just go to signup.formed.org and type in our 18704 Zip-Code or search "St. Ignatius Loyola" and click on the Kingston, PA location. Give a name and an email and you're registered!
Our ECHO apprentice, Deirdre, will be happy to answer any questions you have about how to sign-up for FORMED and the many treasures you can find on there.
PARISH FAITH SHARING GROUPS
Faith Sharing Groups will continue to meet on the second Friday of each month from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in Conlan Hall. Faith is a God-given gift, and this social/spiritual parish activity is one way to open & appreciate this gift. Men and women 18 yrs. of age and older are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served. For questions, please call 570-690-7732.
ALTAR LINEN MINISTRY
Do you enjoy ironing? Are you a person who strives to perform a task to the very best of your ability? Do you have some time to devote to a very beautiful ministry in our parish?
Our Altar Linen Ministry is in need of several new members. If you are interested in joining us - or even just have questions about the ministry, please call Susan Verdone at 570-288-5376 and leave your name, phone number and a brief message. Your call does not constitute a commitment!
Basically, we have a printed schedule that covers about 2 months at a time, containing the names, phone numbers and dates of each person's responsibility for: picking up soiled linens from the Church Sacristy, laundering, ironing and returning them to the Sacristy - in a timely fashion, so that the drawers are always neat, orderly and well-stocked. How often a person's "turn" occurs depends on how many members we have; e.g. if we have 8 members, each would have a turn every 8 weeks. It is not difficult, but it is a very important ministry and dependability is a must. That said, situations do arise where someone is unable to fulfill their scheduled week and then we call each other to arrange a "switch." Training will be provided for new members.
Please prayerfully consider joining us!
