St. Ignatius Loyola Parish Hosts the Holy Hour for Vocations

On the third Friday of each month, from September to May, hundreds of people of all ages gather at St. Ignatius Loyola Church in Hicksville for an evening of praise and worship. The majority of these 600+ people are young adults, college and high school and even middle school-age students, who come from around the Diocese of Rockville Centre to gather to praise the name of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Music, Adoration and inspiring talks from dynamic speakers comprise the Holy Hour portion of the evening.  Following worship,

all attending gather for fellowship, opportunities for confession and of course, the ever popular dodgeball tournament. It is a wonderful way for like-minded Catholic youth to learn about and increase their faith and spend time together.

Saint Ignatius Loyola Parish Hosts Visit of
National Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima

Recently, Saint Ignatius Loyola Parish was privileged to host a visit from the National Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima. During a two week period, select parishes throughout the diocese offered times of prayer, visitation and Masses in honor of Our Lady. The statue is a modeled after the original statue from Fatima, Portugal, crafted according to the description of Sister Lucia, who in 1917 was one of the three children who witnessed the apparitions of Mary. In 1967 it was blessed by Pope Paul VI, and entrusted to the World Apostolate of Fatima USA (WAFUSA) to travel throughout the country. On Monday, November 12, 2012 from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. parishioners and pilgrims alike came to the church to pray before Our Blessed Mother in the only bi-lingual service offered in the diocese. All four mysteries of the Holy Rosary were prayed in English and Spanish, with accompanying music in both languages. Hand-made commemorative rosaries were distributed to the faithful; many of which were blessed at the mantle of Our Lady. Custodian William Sockey, from the World Apostolate of Fatima gave a presentation about the Message of Fatima.

 The evening concluded with a beautiful bi-lingual Mass, concelebrated by our Pastor Father Jim Stachacz and Associate Pastor Father Saul Londono. We feel very blessed and thankful for the opportunity to host such a beautiful event in our parish.
