Vision of St. Ignatius Parish 

St. Ignatius parish is a joyful, spirit-filled community of faithful believers, unified by one baptism, rooted to one identity in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We are a faith community possessing an ever unfolding spirituality centered in the Eucharist and a prayers' life inclusive of many expressions of faith.  Under the guidance of our Blessed Mother Mary and St. Joseph, we are a journeying community sharing in the mission of Christ to establish God's kingdom of justice, peace and love committed to a loving and faithful service to our families and compassion for the poor.

WELCOME!  This church is our Heavenly Father’s house, a place of solace and grace; so feel at home here. Enter reverently, pray quietly, sing joyfully, listen attentively, give cheerfully and come back gladly. If you are new to our community; Welcome! If you are visiting, please remain a few minutes after Mass and get acquainted. We are a welcoming community. To know more about us please call 320-274-8828. Web site: www.stignatiusmn.com
