Thunderclap is the Alpha Youth Series which is a brand new,
reimagined, interactive series exploring life, faith and meaning.
A Warm Welcome is extended to all who have
come to Saint Ignatius and to the Chapel of Saint Ann to join
together in this community of worship and praise to Almighty
God. We are grateful to our faithful parishioners who come
to our church every weekend. Also, we welcome our neighbors
and guests who visit us occasionally and want them to know
they are always welcome.
St. Ignatius Church was established in 1885 for Irish Immigrants
who settled in what is now Pringle. St. Hedwig's Church (Polish)
was established in 1901 and St. Mary's Annunciation church
(Lithuanian) was established in 1902. These three were consolidated
into St. Ignatius Loyola Parish in 2007-2009. This blending
has brought a new awareness of ethnic customs and spirituality.
St. Ignatius Loyola Parish remains committed to exemplifying
a contemporary approach to Church. It is active in liturgy,
social outreach, cultural exchange, and spirituality. In line
with diocesan guidelines, the Parish Pastoral Council is forming
a five year pastoral plan based on the areas of Word, Worship,
Community, and Service, as put forth by Bishop Joseph Bambera
in his pastoral letter, Wounded and Loved, Regathering
the Scattered. Further information on this can be found
in the hypertext link, "Bishop Bambera's Pastoral letter
"Wounded and Loved, Regathering the Scattered."
Based on the Bishop's pastoral, Wounded and Loved, Regathering
the Scattered, the ministries of the parish can be structured
around Word, Worship, Community and Service and implemented
by Servant Leadership.
