As a faith community in the Ignatian Jesuit tradition, we are especially mindful of our neighbors in need. We both practice hands-on charity and care for the sick and needy and advocacy against unjust structures in our society which oppress the poor and militate for war. In all of our outreach activities we collaborate with other Christian Churches and non-Christian Religious Congregations on the upper East Side of Manhattan and beyond.

Meeting Christ in Prayer is an interactive 8-week guided prayer experience for small groups. Based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, it introduces participants to various ways of praying and provides an opportunity to support one another through faith sharing.

Weekly meetings are 90 minutes long and include group prayer, guided meditation, small group faith sharing, and an orientation for the following week’s prayer or prayer techniques. The cost of the program is a sliding scale of $30-$50 and covers all materials. Scholarships are available.

Your Parish, Your Home:
Campaign for the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola

At the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, we warmly welcome those who seek to be a part of a vibrant worshipping community.

For more than 150 years as a Jesuit parish, we have followed the Ignatian Way of prayer, community, and service. We are always open to where God is calling us.

But our magnificent church buildings don’t reflect the welcome we extend to everyone.

You can help change that by making a gift to this important capital campaign.

Through the work we are eager to accomplish, we will continue to grow our parish, build our community, and fulfill our mission.
