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.

Our warmest welcome to all who celebrate with us, whether long-time residents or newly arrived in the parish. If you have not registered, have had a change of address, or are moving, please Click HERE to submit form.

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”
- Mt 11:28-30

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 nothing that destroys more 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.

Join us for an hour and help us move
forward to new adventures with the CCW.
Refreshments will be served.

When this is over, may we never again take for granted. . . .
• A handshake with a stranger
• Full shelves at the store
• Conversations with neighbors
• A crowded theater
• Friday night out
• The taste of communion
• A routine checkup
• The school rush each morning
• Coffee with a friend
• The stadium roaring
• Each deep breath
• A boring Tuesday
• Life itself.
••When this ends,
May we find that we have become more like the people we wanted to be, we were called to be, we hoped to be, and may we stay that way—better for each other be-cause of the worst.
