St. Ignatius of Loyola, Chestnut Hill is a Jesuit parish rooted in the tradition of Ignatian spirituality. Located just next to Boston College's main campus, St. Ignatius Parish serves a center of spiritual life for both residents of Chestnut Hill and Newton as well as students from the BC community. 

Our parish, part of the Archdiocese of Boston, blends diocesan life with the richness of the Jesuit tradition. At our founding, care for our church was assigned to priests in the Jesuit community of Boston College. We have been continually blessed by this close relationship over the years. 

As a Catholic community, we welcome all to share in the joy of the Gospel as we grow in knowledge, love, and service to God and each other.
