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.
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 below
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.
