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.
May Crowning is a longstanding tradition, when our school gathers
to sing for the Blessed Mother, present her with spring’s first
flowers and crown her with a small wreath of blossoms. This
joyous occasion was also a time to recognize in a special way,
our students who have received their First Communion.
Our whole school community; students, faculty, staff, and many
parents come together to pray and worship at these monthly
liturgies. Students participate actively in the
congregation, in the choir, as altar servers, as lectors, and as
ministers of hospitality.
