Vision of St. Ignatius Parish 

St. Ignatius parish is a joyful, spirit-filled community of faithful believers, unified by one baptism, rooted to one identity in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We are a faith community possessing an ever unfolding spirituality centered in the Eucharist and a prayers' life inclusive of many expressions of faith.  Under the guidance of our Blessed Mother Mary and St. Joseph, we are a journeying community sharing in the mission of Christ to establish God's kingdom of justice, peace and love committed to a loving and faithful service to our families and compassion for the poor.

Weekly Meditation(s)
Daily Prayer to End Abortion
 Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life and for
the lives of all my brothers and sisters. I know there is noth-
ing that destroys more in life than abortion, yet I rejoice that
you have conquered death by the resurrection of  Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
 Today, I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice, not just for some, but for all. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
