GRATITUDE and HOPE
As the only Jesuit parish and parochial school in the Diocese of Sacramento, St. Ignatius Loyola Parish and School have been the spiritual home to families in the Sacramento area for over 60 years. We are a true Jesuit community - being called to help nurture "men and women for others" with gratitude, passion, and humility. As we look forward to our future, we can ensure that the sacrifices of our great grandparents, grandparents, and parents are preserved. We can look forward to realizing the vision for St. Ignatius Parish and School for the next 60 years - together. We invite you to join us by continuing the legacy of St. Ignatius' founders. Your gift will benefit countless generations of families, children, and individuals, and make it possible to expand and enhance St. Ignatius' Parish and School ministries today and into the future. Thank you for your continued support and willingness to consider this worthwhile endeavor.
The Next 60 YEARS
Several generations ago, the “Barn Families” had a vision and a mission for a church, school, and faith community. Through their unyielding commitment, these families laid the foundation for what is known today as a “model” Jesuit parish and school. This remarkable and inspirational gift has made a meaningful difference in the lives of thousands of families over the last 60 years. A thriving parish and school, our St. Ignatius' community is not immune to today's challenges. The staff and parishioners have dutifully maintained the facilities, but most structures have long outlived their useful lifespan. They cannot accommodate technological enhancements, and are inadequate to serve the growing needs of our many ministries.
Preserve OUR FUTURE
To address the challenges of our existing site, the master site plan will maximize the use of our existing property and provide and much-improved campus layout. When completed, the new campus layout will include: A new school building, with up-to-date classrooms, both upper and lower science labs, and the technological infrastructure to prepare our students for secondary school, college, and beyond; Additional meeting space; An outdoor gathering space in closer proximity to the church; And parish offices which are open and welcoming to all.
Moving has begun!
Students, parents, parishioners, and alumni came out to help move the school into the new modular classrooms. Thank you to all those helping to make this possible before classes start on August 15th.
