Making All Things New: Summary Report and Phase II
Over the last several months, we asked parishioners to participate in an assessment of the parish as part of the Archdiocesan pastoral planning initiative Making All Things New.
Through a survey and a series of town hall meetings, we asked you to give an honest evaluation of the health of St. Ignatius Loyola. Your thoughts and comments were most helpful and indicated a very high level of satisfaction in and pride of our parish.
To view a summary of the survey findings, click through the PowerPoint presentation below.
As we move into Phase II of the assessment, we will begin meeting with neighboring parishes to exchange information from our respective parish assessments and discuss how we can collaborate better in the future, including the precise structural form of this collaboration.

As we begin this important Phase with our neighboring parishes, we ask for your continued prayers.
Have you donated to the Annual Appeal?
The Annual Appeal is the parish’s most important financial appeal of the year. Funds from this collection are an important part of maintaining our annual expenses.
Our goal is $600,000 and at present the total stands at $230,730. We are deeply grateful for the donations that have come in and for those that continue to arrive daily.
If you have not yet made a contribution and are considering your year-end charitable giving, we encourage you to include the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola. Click here to be directed to our online donation page.
Thank you and God bless you!
