The Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Fr. Arturo Sosa
S.J., has called for an “Ignatian Year” to celebrate the life of
St Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits.
The Year will open on May 20th, the 500th anniversary of when
Ignatius the soldier was injured by a cannonball in the Battle of
Pamplona. The Year will conclude on July 31, 2022, the feast day
of St. Ignatius. The peak of the celebration will fall on
March 12, 2022, the 400th anniversary of the canonization of St.
Ignatius and St. Francis Xavier.
I’m happy to announce that work began on Monday July 19 on our
new Tiger Field. Parker Landscaping of Sacramento is our
contractor. The old field was fenced for safety, and the removal
of the old sod and grading is already well underway. The new
sprinkler system and soil amendment and further grading come
next, and then installation of the new sod. We hope to have the
field in playable condition by mid-September.
PAL sports return for the 2021-22 school year! Fall sports
include: Boys Flag Football (7th & 8th grades); Co-ed
Cross Country (5th – 8th grades); and Girls Volleyball (5th – 8th
grades). All St. Ignatius students participating in a PAL
sport must have their medical release form on file in the office
and completed 1st – 8th grade Emergency Medical form completed on
School Speak. All forms can be found on School Speak under
the Athletics forms tab.
Sports are an integral part of the total religious and
educational program at St. Ignatius School. Come support St.
Ignatius while watching a 49ers game at Levi
stadium. A proceed from each ticket will go back to
support St. Ignatius Athletics. Ticket purchases do not
count towards fundraising credit.
On behalf of our entire staff, we welcome you to St. Ignatius Parish School. At St. Ignatius Parish School, you are part of a close knit community, who live their faith, and see the children thrive under the leadership of our pastor, Father Mike Moynahan.
Anyone who would like to volunteer their time at school, on a
field trip, or any activity that involves our students, MUST
