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.
