Welcome to the Parish of St Ignatius!
If you are a newcomer to our parish, a returning parishioner or if you are thinking about joining the Catholic faith, a very special welcome to you.

St Ignatius Parish is a vibrant,caring, friendly, growing parish community
situated in the suburb of St Heliers.Our parish has adopted the Community model of church; where everyone is welcomed as family and in turn is expected to be family to one another.
Our Vision:
" To be a Christian faith community that reflects God's love for everyone."

If you'd like to join us for Mass, we would love to see you.
Please introduce yourself to Father John or any one of our parishioners 
before or after Mass and we will make you most welcome.

The aim of this website is to provide you with information about our Parish.
If you’d simply like to contact us or find out what’s happening you can do both via this website.

Blessings from the Parish Team.

Belonging leads to belief:
"When people feel they belong, they find it easier to believe in everything.
When they have a sense of being accepted, of being among like-minded people
and belonging to a group, it's tremendously empowering
Archbishop John Dew
