Green Phase Update

The faithful continue to be dispensed by the Archbishop from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation until further notice. Although the obligation is dispensed, please keep the Lord’s Day with prayer and reflection, along with the possible viewing of a live streamed celebration of Mass. Those who are sick or compromised due to health conditions are not to come to church.

Masses have resumed following CDC and Archdiocesan guidelines. Sunday Masses will be held on on our normal weekend Mass schedule.

Social distancing seating will be required, and face coverings will be strongly encouraged.

Ushers will be available to assist and direct:
FACE COVERINGS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED
Every other pew will be blocked off
Families can sit together (preferably on the left or right pews)
Everyone else must sit 6 feet apart
Ushers must wear gloves during collection
The Communion pattern will be altered – Follow the direction from the ushers.
The church will be wiped down after each mass.
We also ask that you please not congregate in the Church after Mass.

The Rectory office will be open Monday through Friday from 9am until 4pm. All other times will be by appointment only. For your protection, and the protection of the staff, we ask that all persons over the age of 2 wear a mask while in the rectory. Please do not hesitate to contact us at 215-493-3377 or contact@stignatius.church before you stop by as most things can still be accomplished with a phone call.

Community Emergency Fund
The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected us all in one way or another – some more seriously than others. For some, the effects are limited to disruptions in our daily routines. Still others are worried about how they will be able to put food on their tables. To help address these more serious issues, St. Ignatius Parish has established a Community Emergency Fund.
Please read the attached document Click Here about how you can support fundraising efforts as well as how community members can reach out for support. The attachment includes a form that applicants can use to request emergency financial assistance.

We also want to let our parishioners and the community know that there are many government programs and resources available to those impacted by COVID-19. Please Click Here for a list of resources that may help you and your family.
