We want to thank the generosity of our parishioners who responded so quickly to this year’s Trees of Hope. As in years past, with the arrival of the Advent Season San Ignacio Parish places a couple of Christmas trees in the entrance to the church. The decorations on the trees are invitations for parishioners to bring a specific gift item that will be donated to the entity or community stated on the ornament. This year San Ignacio Parish has dedicated its Trees of Hope to serve the needs of the Instituto Psicopedagógico de Puerto Rico, the Hogar de Niñas de Cupey and Centro Comunitario Caminando con Caimito. In record time, by the second Sunday of Advent, the ornaments had been taken and returned with gift bags by the trees. We wish to thank everyone who has made this activity possible.
At the beginning of October 2020, San Ignacio Parish invited parishioners to envision a new way to experience community and live our faith. In response, we are renewing the ways to communicate with the 930am community, to improve connections during this time of social distancing. Please look the options below for participation. Choose them all if you like! Join us in making our faith come to life in new ways.
