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.

Annual Global Lay Fast for Priests Saturday, October 17, 2020
The fast hours are from dawn until 3:00 pm. You may fast from food, television, speech, electronics, or anything that you feel lets your share in some way in the sacrifice of our Lord. As lay members of the Mystical Body of Christ we need to support our priests. Our fast intention is for their Spirituality, their needs and thanksgiving for the sacrifice of their lives; which they daily offer for us.
(Sponsored by the Serrans)
“...prayer united with fasting is the most powerful force in human history.”
