Holy Name Mission Statement

 

We the baptized men, of St. Ignatius Loyola Parish, come and form a community, The Holy Name Society, to seek the living Christ in shared spiritual and corporal works of mercy. A source of these efforts is our devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus and Christ as our model and mentor. We remain faithful to the spiritual growth and development of our community through shared acts of prayer, study and service. The society assists parish ministries in serving those in need and is especially dedicated to and supportive of the needs and activities for our parish families with children. Working together, we encourage practices of generosity, hospitality, peace, and stewardship for our parish and its ministries.
