Lower Church Proposed Renovations
In the early days of our Parish, Mass was held in the basement of the church while the upstairs was still under construction. In the 1950's weekly Sunday Mass attendees were so great in number that services were held simultaneously in both the upstairs and the downstairs church .
Our Parish needs evolved over the years and the basement became a catch-all for storage. You would find Christmas decorations and church pews, statutes and candlesticks, pieces and parts from the Church festivals and oddities of all kinds.
In the 1980's a section of the basement was partitioned off to store items for our Food Pantry.
Recently crews have been working to eliminate the clutter , organize the valuables and reclaim the basement for usable space.
The following is the Final Rendering of the renovations planned for the lower church. You will be hearing more on this project and how it is being funded, in the near future.
FROM OUR PASTOR Happy Holy Week & Easter 2019
Dear Parishioners, Alumni, and Friends
“Since the beginning of Lent until now we have prepared our hearts by penance and charitable works. Today we gather to herald with the whole Church the beginning of the celebration of our Lord’s Paschal Mystery, that is to say, of his Passion and Resurrection.” Thus begins the great liturgies of Holy Week on Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord. Following the blessing of Palms on Palm Sunday, procession is made to the altar of Sacrifice, to remind us that Holy Week is one long procession, journeying with Jesus through the events of the final week of his public ministry, as he makes his way to the Cross, the altar of our salvation. Like the crowds who heralded Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem, join us at St. Ignatius for these beautiful and powerful Holy Week liturgies. In the Holy week liturgies we recognize Jesus as the One in whom we should trust every day.
This year on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday, we will gather for the Church’s Morning Prayer at 10am each morning. We will pray the Psalms which Jesus uttered in his heart and upon the cross, as a way of keeping holy the hours of the Sacred Triduum.
We will observe the Washing of the Feet during the Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper, to recall Jesus’ Mandatum, the mandate “to love one another as I have loved you” and make procession with the Blessed Sacrament to the altar of repose for a period of adoration of Jesus’ Real Presence in the Eucharist which He instituted at the Last Supper.
Enter into the solemn silence of Good Friday with us at the Celebration of the Passion of the Lord as we turn our gaze to the cross, “the source of eternal life, the school of justice and peace, the universal patrimony of pardon and mercy (Pope Benedict XVI, Good Friday 2008).”
And anticipating the joy of the feast of Easter, consider bringing your Easter baskets to be blessed on Holy Saturday, and then rejoice with the whole Church and celebrate the new life of the Resurrection at the Great Easter Vigil or one of the Easter Sunday masses.
During Holy Week and Easter we turn to the Lord to illuminate the darkness in our lives with his Holy Light. Come let us worship! May God bless you and your families this Holy Week and Easter season.
