Parish/School Announcements

  • The Lay Pastoral Ministry Program is coming back to the west side!  Classes for the non-degreed Certificate of Ministry will meet at St. Ignatius Parish for two years beginning in August, 2015.  The program equips men and women to evangelize, catechize and serve more effectively as they grow in faith, knowledge and skills.  The classes will meet primarily on Saturdays.  Flexible formation components and a part-time structure enable students to maintain work and family obligations while discerning God’s call and preparing for new opportunities.  The main campus in Mt. Washington also offers an MA Pastoral Ministry and a Graduate Certificate.  For more information, or to set up a personal interview, call 231-1200 or email at smcgurgan@athenaeum.edu.

  • Introducing a Fortnight for Freedom:  For the fourth consecutive year, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is supporting a “Fortnight for Freedom” from now until July 4 – a period of prayer and action in support of religious freedom.  These dates encompass the feast days of several great martyrs, St. Thomas More, St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, Sts. Peter & Paul and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome.  The theme this year is “Freedom to Bear Witness.”  To learn more, please visit www.catholiccincinnati.org and click on the “Preserving Religious Freedom” link under the Resources menu. 

  • Pregnancy Center West needs your help!  During the summer, our supply of baby items decreases due to the lack of donations.  We are in urgent need of diapers (sizes 2 thru 6) and baby wash and shampoo.  We can always use baby clothes (up to size 3T) and other new or gently used baby items!  Thank you for any help you can offer!  For more information, you can call us at 244-5700 or email us at pcwest@fuse.net.

  • All Star Party:  Did you know that Cincinnati is hosting the All Star game for the first time in 27 years?  Well, St. Ignatius has been chosen to have an All Star Party on July 14 from 5pm-10pm.  You will be able to come and be part of the All Star activities like a Home Run Derby, relay races, fast pitch and a baseball walk with souvenir prizes and much more!  You will be able to watch the game and we will also have a special guest appearance from Livvy Stubenrauch, the voice of “young” Anna in Frozen!
