Online Reservations Now Available for Our Weekend Masses

Online registration is now available for our in-person weekend liturgies.

As was previously announced, our weekend Mass schedule has been revised. While we will still have the 5:30 PM Mass on Saturday, the Sunday schedule will be different. On Sunday, we will celebrate Masses in the Church at 8:00 AM, 10:15 AM, 12:30 PM, and 5:30 PM.

To reserve a place for our weekend Masses, please visit https://ignatius.nyc/mass-reservations.

Reservations may also be made by calling the Parish House at (212) 288-3588.

Registration closes every Saturday at 12 Noon.

In addition to the modified schedule, how you attend Mass will change as well. We invite you to view this video, which outlines the health and safety guidelines that are and will continue to be in place. In addition, the video will orient you to the new norms for entering and leaving the church, and for receiving communion.



Church of St. Ignatius Loyola A/V Appeal

On Sunday, June 7th, Fr. Yesalonia announced an ambitious expansion of our livestream capabilities at the parish.

Daily Mass will continue to livestream from the Lady Chapel every day at 5:30 PM.

Later this summer, we will have the capability to livestream Sunday Mass from Church. Additionally, screens will be installed in the Church and so that pre-recorded music can be broadcast into the Church during services.

Eventually, services and events will be livestreamed from the Lady Chapel, the Church, and Wallace Hall.

Work on this project in the Church will commence later this summer.

Please support this important initiative, which has been budgeted at $350,000.

Donations can be made here.

From the Pastor

24 July 2020

Dear Parishioners,

It is my responsibility as Pastor to keep you informed of the financial condition of the parish. Each Fall an Annual Report is published that details the expenses and revenues of the parish. In the two most recent reports (2018-2019) I commented on a decrease in the income from the Offertory collection and Annual Fund. This year’s report will show a significant, and alarming, reduction in parish income. Our expenses have remained relatively constant because we have had no lay-offs of any employee and have had to incur substantial unanticipated expenditures related to the health and safety measures related to the coronavirus. In addition, there was the unanticipated capital cost in setting up the capability to livestream Masses from the Lady Chapel. [I write “unanticipated,” but add “providential!”]

Your help is urgently needed to cover the operational expenses of the parish. While church reserves provide something of a cushion to soften the blow of an operating deficit, they are not unlimited. I encourage you to use your weekly Offertory envelopes and deposit them in the collection boxes in the church or drop them in the mail.  Better yet, you have the option to make a recurring contribution through your credit card or bank account by going to the parish website and using the DONATE link.

Returning to the unanticipated and providential opportunity for livestreaming, your help is also needed to underwrite the new audio/visual system that will be installed in the church, Lady Chapel, and Wallace Hall. The importance of livestreaming has become evident to all during the pandemic; it will undoubtedly be an enduring, and endearing, a feature of our worship and outreach! While in-person attendance at our weekend Masses is understandably low at this time, we continue to serve several hundred families joining us for Sunday Mass through livestreaming. The installation of an audio/visual system for the three environments is on a fast-track as is the payment for it. Please take a moment to invest in this worthwhile initiative. You may make a donation by mail or by using the DONATE link of the parish website.

Now for the good news! The construction work for the elevator on the 84th side of the church has resumed. The steel infrastructure work is nearing completion. As you know, this project is being funded through the parish’s capital campaign, Your Parish, Your Home. We are $700,000 from reaching the campaign goal of $7.5 million. The campaign was suspended when the pandemic first struck. We will resume solicitations in September and believe we will successfully conclude the campaign in the Spring of 2021. More information will be forthcoming.

For the many ways you have contributed to the vibrant life of our parish, thank you! Please take this opportunity now to renew your commitment through your generous financial support.

May all that we do as a parish be for the greater glory of God! And may we be renewed and refreshed by the richness and bounty of God’s love!

Sincerely in the Lord,
Fr. Yesalonia
