The word “Confirmation” then reminds us that this Sacrament brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace: it unites us more firmly to Christ, it renders our bond with the Church more perfect, and it gives us a special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread and defend the faith, … to confess the name of Christ boldly, and never to be ashamed of his Cross (cf.Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 1303).

— Pope Francis


Hello St. Ignatius of Loyola,
Our staff wanted to give an update as to where we stand with registration regarding fall classes for children, youth and adults.
At this time, we are not accepting registrations for the fall.   We will be having classes, but we are waiting to hear more from the Archdiocese of Baltimore and  Frederick County Schools.    Our class options will look very different than before.   We want to work with our parish families and not overwhelm them, so we will be delaying the start of the Faith Formation year until at least November.  If you have registered members of your family for a class, we will be in touch with you in the near future.
We will have virtual options, potentially in class options (depending on the grade and limited class size) and a family home school component.
In September, we will communicate to the entire parish by September 1st how everyone will be able to register for class, class options and schedules.   Information will be posted on our website, bulletin, email and social media.
Thank you for working with us as we all begin a blessed and creative new year in Faith Formation.
Peace in Christ,
Carol Smith
