About Us

The Parish of St. Ignatius Loyola is a vibrant faith community administered by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Located on New York City’s Upper East Side, the Parish offers a wide range of ministries and welcomes new parishioners and visitors.

This site will provide you with a glimpse into our Parish life, which includes daily and weekly masses, celebration of the sacraments, education opportunities and, our service and music programs. All of these elements work together to nourish the spiritual development of our parishioners and to reach out to the larger community within the city.

Operating within the framework of Ignatian spirituality and the Jesuit tradition, we seek to answer the Lord’s call in our shared ministry as a true community of disciples, gathered in prayer and worship, sharing the Universal Church’s mission of evangelization and service.

Morning & Evening Scripture Classes

Morning Class: Women in the Bible, Part II
Six Sessions - Mondays at 11:00 AM in the Meeting Room (Note: Due to the Columbus Day holiday, that week’s session will meet on Tuesday, October 10th)

From Sarah to Syntyche, from Rebekka to Ruth, from Miriam to Mary, women have been God’s indispensible partners in the unfolding drama of our faith, often fulfilling unexpected and vital roles. 

We will continue our study of biblical women as we meet Miriam and the Hebrew midwives who save Moses’ life, the daughters of Zelophehad – early advocates of women rights,  Ruth – an outsider who shows extraordinary fidelity to Israel’s God, and Judith – a beautiful widow who delivers Israel from powerful foes. We will also explore the role of women in the early church and how that role dramatically changed within a generation.

Join us as we reflect on the wisdom and witness of these remarkable women.

Evening Class: When Bad Things Happen to Good People: The Book of Job
Six Sessions - Mondays at 7:00 PM in the Meeting Room (Note: Due to the Columbus Day holiday, that week’s session will meet on Tuesday, October 10th)

As we mature in our faith we are inevitably confronted with difficult questions—do things happen for a reason? Why do good people suffer? Is there any connection between our deeds and what happens to us? Why is life unfair? Is God really loving and just?

The book of Job explores these with uncompromising honesty—the main character, Job, goes so far as to accuse God of being an overpowering bully who has some explaining to do! And God’s response to Job’s questions—our questions—is stunning.
