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 continues to form a 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.
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.
Monsignor David L. Tressler – Pastor

During Lent, our parish community provides added opportunities for prayer.
• THURSDAY MORNING COMMUNITY PRAYER: Check the St. Ignatius Facebook page at 6:45 AM (or any time after) on Thursday mornings and join Holy Family & St. Ignatius parishes for a 10 minute livestream prayer while getting ready for school, driving to work, or brewing the coffee!
• EUCHARISTIC ADORATION: Every Friday during Lent, there will be Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Eucharistic Adoration at St. Ignatius Church from 1:00 PM to 5:45 PM, concluding with Stations of the Cross at 5:45 PM. Please plan now to stop in at the church and pray in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament on Fridays during Lent.
• STATIONS OF THE CROSS are prayed after the 12:10 PM Mass at Holy Family Parish and at 5:45 PM at St. Ignatius each Friday during Lent. The 5:45 PM Stations will be livestreamed.
