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
Father Shawn M. Simchock– Parochial Vicar
Gerard Pernot - Deacon

Msgr Tressler was installed as pastor of our newly linked Holy Family Parish. Fr Joe Evanko, Regional Vicar and pastor of St Jude’s Parish in MtTop was Principal Celebrant. There was a nice mix in attendance from both parishes. These beginning moments as the people of God come together as one, in community of faith, will strengthen us moving forward.
It was a beautiful Mass, wonderful music and a warm reception afterwards.
