Young Adults Ministry
The young adults of St. Ignatius Parish will gather for a casual night of food, drinks, and conversation from 6:30 – 9:00 on Friday, June 21, at Biergarten, in Hayes Valley at 424 Octavia St. It is outdoor, open seating, so dress warmly. All are welcome!
So we can get a better sense of the needs and hopes of the young adults in our parish, please fill out the brief survey found on the link below.
Would you or someone you know be a strong candidate to take on an active and rewarding leadership role in our Parish? The Parish Council and the Finance Committee are two key governance committees of St. Ignatius Parish that partner with the Pastor to help plan and execute the strategic priorities and fiscal operations for our Parish. We expect to add new members to both committees beginning in Fall 2013 and are excited to reach out to the Parish to help with the search process.
Members of both committees serve two- to three-year terms and are expected to participate in monthly meetings, as well as actively lead one or more project teams. We are currently in the process of reviewing nominations for both committees and talking with interested candidates. New members will be selected by a Nominating Committee, which includes the Pastor. Current members of both committees can be found on the parish website.
If you are passionate about the Parish and are interested in serving our community in this way, or you know of someone who is, please email our new Parish Council Chairperson, Kari Novatney (Kari@Novatney.com) or Fr. Greg (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the name(s), contact info, and a short explanation of your interest or of why you are nominating another. Thank you for considering this important and extremely rewarding work for our Parish!
