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.

Day of Prayer for Legal Protection of Unborn Children - Friday, January 22nd
   A great prayer for life is urgently needed, a prayer which will rise up throughout the world. Through special initiatives and in daily prayer, may an impassioned plea rise to God, the Creator and lover of life, from every Christian community, from every group and association, from every family and from the heart of every believer.
   Pope Saint John Paul II (Evangelium Vitae) The over 60 million abortions since the 1973 de-cisions of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton reflect with heartbreaking magnitude what Pope Francis means by a “throwaway culture.” However, we have great trust in God’s providence. We are reminded time and again in Scripture to seek the Lord’s help, and as people of faith, we believe that our prayers are heard.
   The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM), no 373, designates January 22 as a par-ticular day of prayer and penance, called the “Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children”. In all the Dioceses of the US, January 22 (or January 23, when January 22 falls on a Sunday) shall be observed as a particular day of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life and penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion.”
   As individuals, we are called to observe this day through the penitential practices of prayer, fasting and/or giving alms. Another way to take part if through participating in special events to observe the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

SPEAK OUT FOR LIFE - MCCL March for Life - January 22, 2021

Whether in-person or virtually, we’ll gather to commemorate lives lost to abortion and to call for protection. The 2021 MCCL March for Life will take place on Friday, Jan. 22—but it may look different than in past years. It is possible that we will not be able to hold our traditional in-person March outside the state Capitol, because of ongoing safety concerns and/or government restrictions on gatherings due to COVID-19. If it is not possible, we will hold a Virtual March for Life online at the same time, noon on Jan. 22. Stay updated at the following: our website at or on social media: - Twitter @ MCCL_org  You can always call the MCCL office at 612-825-6831 to ask about any new information.
