We are the Jesuit Church of Baltimore

Welcome to St. Ignatius Catholic Community in the Mount Vernon section of downtown Baltimore. Our mission is that of every Christian community—Live the Gospel, whatever it takes.

Over a thousand people have found a spiritual home here—people of all ages, cultures, and in different seasons of life. Families are encouraged, children are nurtured, older people are supported, and college students are challenged.

As a Jesuit parish, we encourage people to reflect on their experiences and to discern God’s presence in their lives. Our desire is to nurture lay leadership as well as personal faith a “faith that does justice” by way of solidarity with the poor and dedication to the greater good.
