The parishioners at St. Ignatius join in the Name of Jesus Christ to worship in the community of faith and to embrace one another in the love of Christ. We wish to share the experience of salvation from Jesus Christ in the Living Catholic Tradition of Word and Sacrament -- through worship, education, service and outreach to all, especially the poor, sick and those in need.
We invite all peoples called by the Holy Spirit, to join us in the living Gospel as a way of life to share the experience of Salvation in the Catholic Tradition.
Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam,
"For the Greater Glory of God"
These words of our patron saint, St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491 - 1556; Memorial: July 31), truly reflect the spirit of this faith-filled mission community located in beautiful Buchanan Valley.
