Heart to Heart Sister Parish Update
We have just been notified that the 3 parishioners from our Sister Parish in Pacuan have decided to delay their visit to St. Ignatius. Due to weather and delays, they were not able to make timely appointments to receive their VISAS. They are very sorry, but will once again meet with their St. Vincent Ferrer Mission Team to begin plans for a visit next June. All in God’s time! Please pray for the continued success in growing our global relationship with our brothers and sisters of St. Vincent Ferrer.
There are presently 30+Catholic residents at the Annandale Care Center facilities. Nothing brightens their day like a short visit - definitely the best ’gift’ they will receive! Help also needed at the First Friday Mass and Tuesday Communion Rosary Service, 10:30 in the chapel. Women visitors are terrific, but we have a big demand for men visitors! If you’re interested in this ministry or for further information please call Renee Logeais at 274-5745. We anxiously await your calls, the residents anxiously await your visits! Thank you.
