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.

Daily Advent Reflection: December 12th

The meaning of the presence of Jesus in our midst is that God is with us, God has, God has always been with us, God is in our history. — Carlo Martini, S.J.

In her appearance as the Virgin of Guadalupe, Mary took on the features of an indigenous Mesoamerican woman. Oppression had been the lot of the people of Mesoamerica for centuries. The Spanish conquest only changed who wielded power, as local elites ceded to invaders from Europe. By assuming the aspect of a woman of a subjugated people, Mary proclaimed her solidarity with all the downtrodden. With her on their side, how could they doubt that her Son was on their side as well? By sending his mother into the midst of the oppressed, looking just like one of them, Jesus affirmed that he too was present among them and had always been present among them, their companion in their history and in their sufferings.
— Rev. Thomas H. Feely, S.J., Associate Pastor
