Celebrations of faith are at the heart of the community that is
St. Ignatius Parish School. The shared faith is that
cohesive element that makes the school a community.
The student body gathers in prayer to begin each week at the
Monday morning assembly. The students share very personal
intentions, confident that their peers will hold them in their
prayers. During the liturgical season of Lent the children
exchange names and pray for their prayer partner. Each
grade plans and participates in a Mass for the school
children. Many parents attend these liturgies and there is
a true sense of community and shared beliefs. The classes receive
the sacrament of Reconciliation during the seasons of Lent and
Advent. The teams pray before athletic events, and parents
pray before meetings. Prayer is the beginning of each day and the
end of each day. Prayer is the comfortable language that is
spoken by everyone who is a part of this school community.
Our 2nd graders led a beautiful May Crowning Mass. The Mass
was dedicated to Mary and concluded with a decade of the Rosary.
May is Mary’s month! And during May, throughout the Catholic
world, special devotions honor the Virgin Mary. “May Crowning” is
a traditional Catholic ritual that occurs in the month of May and
it recognizes Mary as Queen of heaven and earth.
Anyone who would like to volunteer their time at school, on a
