A church with a mission in the city


Welcome to St. Ignatius of Antioch Roman Catholic Parish. You are welcome here! 

Our parish is committed to living out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our neighborhood.  With humility and with wonder, we believe what St. Paul said, "It is God who is at work in us, giving us the will and the power to achieve his purpose."

Please let us know how we can help.

Due to Fr. Estabrook being called to Jury Duty, we will not have 9am morning Mass on Tuesday 4/30.

Taize Prayer

Taizé Prayer is a distinctive style of meditative prayer developed by an ecumenical community of monks in rural France. This quiet, moving reflective prayer combines elements of the Church's traditional Liturgy of the Hours with elements of contemplative meditation. A typical Taizé prayer service incorporates periods of silence with meditative readings from Scripture, prayers of praise and intercession, and the frequent repetition of simple, contemporary chants. Here are the 2023 dates. They are all on a Thursday. This service will be live-streamed on Facebook so our remote guests can enjoy this beautiful prayer service.

Lower Church Proposed Renovations

 In the early days of our Parish, Mass was held in the basement of the church while the upstairs was still under construction. In the 1950's weekly  Sunday Mass attendees were so great in number that services were held simultaneously in both the upstairs and the downstairs church .

Our Parish needs evolved over the years and the basement became a catch-all for storage. You would find Christmas decorations and church pews, statutes and candlesticks, pieces and parts from the Church festivals and oddities of all kinds.

In the 1980's  a section of the basement was partitioned off to store items for our Food Pantry. 

Recently crews have been working to eliminate the clutter , organize the valuables and reclaim the basement for usable space. 

The following is the Final Rendering of the renovations planned for the lower church.   You will be hearing more on this project and how it is being funded, in the near future.




Thank you to all who have continued to support the parish during this time of Quarantine by sending in your offertory envelopes, donations, and online-giving. St. Ignatius depends upon your generosity. Especially with the suspension of public masses, your financial support is needed as utility, insurance, and maintenance bills and salaries still need to be paid. 

Feel free to drop off your envelope at the parish office throughout the week, to mail in your envelopes, or to sign-up for online giving here: https://www.osvonlinegiving.com/1629. You can utilize online giving for a one-time gift or a weekly donation, which you can cancel at any time. Feel free to call the parish office if you would like assistance in setting-up online giving.

-Father Estabrook


The Parish Office is open from 8 am to 4 pm. Please limit your in-person visits to essential issues at this time. We ask this for the safety and protection of our staff. We appreciate your patience.
