St. Ignatius Loyola Parish & School
Founded in Sacramento in 1954, St. Ignatius Loyola Parish is a Jesuit Parish uniting hearts and minds in the spirit of Jesus Christ.
When the Jesuits came to Sacramento, there was an intention to open a high school. The early years at Saint Ignatius included the establishing of the parish and its organizations along with conducting organizational efforts that would lead to the founding of Jesuit High School of Sacramento in 1963.
St. Ignatius Parish also oversees the St. Ignatius Parish School, a Roman Catholic Elementary School that actively strives to teach as Jesus taught. In the tradition of its patron, St. Ignatius of Loyola, the educational processes of St. Ignatius School are committed to developing students of faith, action, integrity, thought, and health. In an environment that integrates the shared faith and values into the life and culture of the community, St. Ignatius Parish School provides a quality Catholic educational experience for all its families.
