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.

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.
