St. Ignatius is a thriving community of over 2,200 families, Jesuit clergy, parish staff and dedicated parish volunteers and our various ministries depend exclusively on parishioner’s time, talent and treasure. Running the parish and all of its programs, including salaries, church and parish office maintenance and utilities, faith formation, etc. costs $1.2M a year. We rely solely on parishioner support to meet our expenses and operate our programs. Your donation makes it possible for us to plan an appropriate operating budget and forecast income for the upcoming year.


Together with our pastor, Father Jim Erps, SJ, the Pastoral and Finance Councils strongly encourage registerd parishioners to contibute regularly to the parish. How much you might be able to afford to give, of course, is up to you. Any amount is welcome. Please pray and then consider the amount you are able to contribute to St. Ignatius Parish.
