Message from Father
 

  Hello Everyone,

   I wanted to thank all of you for your great generosity for the stained glass windows project here at Saint Ignatius. Thanks to your sacrifices and support, we will be able to have new stained glass windows in the sanctuary and choir room, which will help beautify the church all the more as a house of God. The insu-lation around all of the windows will also be very practical and helpful, both for our expenses as well as for the comfort of the choir. Thank you for all of your generosity and support. It has been great to see everyone come together to support this project.

   Now that we have exceeded the first goal of $50,000, we are hoping that you would continue your generous support to help us to finish the project by installing a new window in the crying room. You can see the sketch in the gathering space. It is a beautiful image of Jesus speaking with children, which would be fit-ting for that area, of course. That window would cost $40,000 and we are therefore hoping to raise $90,000 total for the stained glass windows. In speaking with many of you and consulting with the parish and finance council, my sense is that you would like to continue to support the project and aim for that $90,000 goal. Thank you again for all of your support and it will be great to see your generosi-ty materialize soon in new windows, insulation, and an even more beautiful sanctuary for God. God bless all of you.
