Coffee Welcome Ministry at St. Ignatius Church

Launch Date: Sunday September 30th (1:15-2pm) – Neil Day

In response to one of the requests from parishioners, the English Center is happy to announce the launch of a new ministry, the Coffee Welcome Ministry (CWM), which is to be held on the 4th Sunday of every month in Teresia Hall (cafeteria).

The premier launch will be on Sunday, Sept 30th after the 12pm Mass. All are welcome to share in the complimentary coffee which will be served by members of SEIBO Japan and members of the International Community. Open to all, young and old, families and all nationalities, it will be an opportunity to greet, meet and make new friends and more importantly, to create an atmosphere of genuine fellowship as brothers and sisters in God’s family.

We are extremely grateful to Seibo Japan (, which is supplying the complimentary coffee and dispense service and staff. SEIBO is an International School Feeding NGO headquartered in Japan that fundraises through a blend of traditional charity & social enterprise. This year they launched Japan's 1st non-profit coffee called “Warm Hearts” ( One-hundred percent of its proceeds are sent to Malawi, Africa as donations.
