Help celebrate our 75th Anniversary Jubilee and express your joy for being a member of St. Ignatius Parish or School by creating a heartfelt rendering of what St. Ignatius means to you. Every Christmas, ornaments commemorating the parish communities of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati hang on the large Christmas tree at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral. This year, in honor of the Dodransbicentennial (175th) Anniversary of the Cathedral and the Bicentennial (200th) Anniversary of the Archdiocese, parishes are invited to provide new ornaments for the tree.
PRIZES?Yes, there are prizes! The winner in each age group for both church and school can choose a $10 gift card from White Oak Coffee House, Arby’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, Panera, Starbucks, Bob Evans, Chipotle, Dunkin’ Donuts, Little Caesar’s, Subway, Wendy’s, LaRosa’s Pizzeria, or Skyline Chili. Please remember, the deadline for entries is October 15!
Here’s where the St. Ignatius Jubilee Committee needs your help! We are holding an ornament contest to choose ornaments for both church and school that will represent St. Ignatius for years to come.
The only requirements are that the ornament should represent the St. Ignatius community & what it means to you, include a hanging loop or opening for a hook, and be less than 12 inches round.
Adults and children of all ages are welcome to enter in both church and school categories! Age groups will include:
• Preschool-First Grade
• Second-Fourth Grade
• Fifth-Eighth Grade
• Ninth-Twelfth Grade
• Adults (yes, parents and staff can join the fun, too!)
Create and submit your ornaments by October 15. Please deliver to the church or school lobby protected in a box and labeled for CHURCH or SCHOOL with your name, grade (for students), email address and phone for an adult for each entry. We will vote for the winner as a parish. All entries will be displayed this Christmas season (and may be claimed afterward OR donated). If you have any questions, contact Melanie Crowe at email@example.com or 513-661-6565, Ext. 2740.
