 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

(1 John 4:7)


Sunday Gospel

On the evening of that first day of the week,
when the doors were locked, where the disciples were,
for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood in their midst
and said to them, "Peace be with you."
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side.
The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you.
As the Father has sent me, so I send you."
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,
"Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
and whose sins you retain are retained."

Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve,
was not with them when Jesus came.
So the other disciples said to him, "We have seen the Lord."
But he said to them,
"Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands
and put my finger into the nailmarks
and put my hand into his side, I will not believe."

Now a week later his disciples were again inside
and Thomas was with them.
Jesus came, although the doors were locked,
and stood in their midst and said, "Peace be with you."
Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and see my hands,
and bring your hand and put it into my side,
and do not be unbelieving, but believe."
Thomas answered and said to him, "My Lord and my God!"
Jesus said to him, "Have you come to believe because you have seen me?
Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed."

Now, Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples
that are not written in this book.
But these are written that you may come to believe
that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God,
and that through this belief you may have life in his name.

In the Spirit of the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, the Christian Service Commission launched the St. Ignatius Food Pantry on Sunday, December 18th, 2016. This service to the needy is an important part of being merciful like the Father,  and in fact, it is one of the corporal works of mercy.

Please direct people who need help  to contact the Church Office or the Christian Service Commission.

The Food Pantry is located in the former Adoration Chapel. The area was recently renovated and blessed to accommodate this new ministry to the needy.

We are encouraging everyone to be part of this great mercy initiative.

Please donate food and other non-perishable items so that the Food Pantry can be fully stocked. The following food items are required and can be dropped off at the Church after Mass or the Church Office at any time:

  • Personal items: Bath soap, toothpaste, toilet paper, deodorant, body lotion, other toiletries, etc.

  • Drinks: Tea, coffee, sugar, cocoa, condensed milk, coffee mate, canned or box juices Ė apple, pineapple, mixed, etc.

  • Carbohydrates: Rice, noodles, flour, cornmeal, oats, pasta, etc.

  • Protein: Sardines, canned - tuna, sausage, mackerel, pork & beans, assorted dried beans, peanut butter, etc.

  • Fruit: Canned fruits, dried fruits, etc.

  • Other Items: Cooking oil, salt, black pepper, assorted dried seasonings/spices, detergent, jams, biscuits, low sugar cereals, etc.
