‘The Thought’


Each morning I wake up, I hope that I will not hear that there is another mass shooting. Over the past three weeks we have sat in disbelief as we listen on a radio, computer, or TV to devastating accounts of victims being gunned down, teachers being shot in the classroom, and an uncontrollable generation of youth pointing guns at each other in our own city. What word can the Church give to assuage the fears and collapse of human decency?

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.
