Today is the Feast Day of the patron saint of St Ignatius' Church. St Ignatius is the founder of the Jesuits (Society of Jesus) and patron of spiritual retreats and soldiers.

While we are unable to celebrate this Feast Day together in person, we pray that all parishioners of St Ignatius' Church and our wider Richmond Catholic Parish will continue to be guided by him and remember this special day. St Ignatius of Loyola, pray for us!   Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam - For the Greater glory of God.

Take and receive, O Lord, my liberty
Take all my will, my mind, my memory
All things I hold and all I own are Thine
Thine was the gift, to Thee I all resign
Do Thou direct and govern all and sway
Do what Thou wilt, command, and I obey

Only Thy grace, Thy love on me bestow
These make me rich, all else will I forego.
Do Thou direct and govern all and sway

Do what Thou wilt, command, and I obey
Only Thy grace, Thy love on me bestow
These make me rich, all else will I forego.

Take and Receive (based on the Suscipe, a prayer of St Ignatius Of Loyola)
