There will be a funeral Mass this Monday January 23rd at 11:30am in the Main Church. All are welcome to attend. Please keep Deacon John's wife, Joan, and his family in your prayers. May the Lord bless them and bring Deacon John into the Eternal Gates of Heaven with our Blessed Lord!

The Women’s Council would like to invite the ladies of our parish to our next meeting on February 16. We will begin with the recitation of the rosary at 11:30 followed by lunch at noon. Our theme for the meeting is Valentine’s Day with a few of our ladies offering a brief story on how they met their husbands; their love story. We will have a boxed lunch provided by Jersey Mike’s at a cost of $10.50. Your choice is either a ham, turkey or vegi sub with chips and a cookie. Reservations, with your choice of sub, can be made by leaving a message on Jean’s cell phone 727-543-5106 by February 13. Please make your checks payable to the St. Ignatius Women’s Council and put them in the collection basket or at the church office by the 13th. Please bring a nonperishable food item for the Food Pantry and your cancelled postage stamps for the wounded veterans. We look forward to seeing your there.
