Vision of St. Ignatius Parish 

St. Ignatius parish is a joyful, spirit-filled community of faithful believers, unified by one baptism, rooted to one identity in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We are a faith community possessing an ever unfolding spirituality centered in the Eucharist and a prayers' life inclusive of many expressions of faith.  Under the guidance of our Blessed Mother Mary and St. Joseph, we are a journeying community sharing in the mission of Christ to establish God's kingdom of justice, peace and love committed to a loving and faithful service to our families and compassion for the poor.

Pray for...
John wore clothing made of camel's hair and had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey. At that time Jerusalem, all Judea, and the whole region around the Jordan were going out to him and were being baptized by him in the Jordan River as they acknowledged their sins.   - Mt 3:4-6

Weekly Meditation
Daily Prayer to End Abortion
 Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life and for the lives of all my
brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than
abortion, yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the resurrection of
Your Son. I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
 Today, I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice, not just for some, but for all. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Moving Forward Together: Archdiocesan Synod

What is it?
A Synod is a formal representative assembly designed to help a bishop in
his shepherding of the local Church. The purpose is to discern and
establish clear pastoral priorities in a way that will both promote greater
unity and lead us to a more vigorous proclamation of Jesus’ good news.

How can I participate?
Please pray for the Synod and our Archdiocese. You are also encouraged to attend a Prayer and Listening Event.
Participants gather together to pray, discuss, and give feedback on what is working well now in their parish and this Archdiocese, and what are the challenges and opportunities. Everyone is invited to attend an event. All participants are encouraged to give written feedback that will be read and considered. Archbishop Bernard Hebda is scheduled to attend all events to pray and to participate in the listening process.

You can find a schedule of Prayer and Listening Events, along with additional information about the Synod on the link below. Schedules are also available in the gathering space.

Please view the following links for video messages from Archbishop Hebda     

WELCOME!  This church is our Heavenly Father’s house, a place of solace and grace; so feel at home here. Enter reverently, pray quietly, sing joyfully, listen attentively, give cheerfully and come back gladly. If you are new to our community; Welcome! If you are visiting, please remain a few minutes after Mass and get acquainted. We are a welcoming community. To know more about us please call 320-274-8828. 

HOLD ONTO THE JOY this Holiday Season!
∗ Focus on your faith. Remembering why we celebrate Christmas can help you focus on what really matters.
∗ Find a way to help others. Volunteering for a worthy cause may help put your challenges in perspective.
∗ Don’t worry about making things perfect. Instead of trying to attend every gathering,
or give everyone the perfect gift, pick the most meaningful ways to celebrate.
∗ Stick to your regular schedule. Keeping your routine can help you stay balanced.
∗ Plan ahead. If your hosting a gathering, get as much done in advance to ease day of scrambling.
∗ Ask for a hand. Make your holiday dinner a potluck so that you’re not respon-sible for every menu item. Feeling stressed? The top cause of holiday stress seems to be finances! 56% of people say they spend too much during the holidays and then feel stressed about fi-nances. 43% said that the extra holiday expense makes it hard to enjoy the holidays and 31% say they have gone into debt from holiday purchases! Don’t let the frenzy of the Christmas season get you down.
Remember, HE is the reason for the season,keep it joyous, memorable and as relaxing as possible.....and enjoy!
