Parish COVID-19 & Spiritual Resources

Members of St. Ignatius Parish, on receiving Monday's public health order to shelter in place, the parish staff made changes to support the safety and wellness of our community:
Effective Wednesday, March 18:
  • St. Ignatius Parish offices are closed until further notice, in accordance with the San Francisco County public health order to shelter in place.
  • Parish staff are working from home and remain available via email; please link here for a staff contact list.
  • In the event of a pastoral emergency, please call 415-422-2188 and press '1' to be connected to USF Public Safety, which will contact one of the Jesuit priests
  • There will be no public daily Masses celebrated at St. Ignatius Church until further notice.
  • There will be only one Mass celebrated on Sundays at 10:00am, which will be livestreamed from St. Ignatius Church. The Mass livestream is the only option to be in communion during this liturgy; due to the shelter in place order, there is no option to be physically present in St. Ignatius Church.
  • Please plan to join us; you can link to the livestream via the parish website, by clicking on the blue 'Mass Livestream' button on the home page. We will offer Mass via livestream every Sunday at 10:00am until further notice.
  • During the shelter in place order: all confessions are canceled.
  • All in-person church events, meetings, and ministries have been cancelled or postponed indefinitely, or moved online.
Our parish staff are readying Children's Faith Formation and Adult Faith Formation materials, prayer aids, spiritual resources, and more, for you all to use during this challenging and uncertain time; we will push them out to you when they are ready.

As you know, our parish expenses continue even though there will be no Sunday basket collection for the next few weeks; that totals nearly $27,000 each month. Please make your Sunday donation or an extra gift via this link. We’re most grateful.

We will endeavor to keep pace with any changes and update all of these resources - event and ministry, worship schedule, and spiritual, as well as COVID-19 advisories - as quickly as we can. Know that we are working hard to provide ways for you to remain connected to your faith and your faith community during this difficult time. As a parish staff person put it, Let's keep our social distance, but remain spiritually close to one another. This is our goal, and we’ll be in touch with ways to do that.

Many thanks to you all, and may God bless you.
