A little bit about us

Our vision & mission

We are a welcoming and joyful spiritual home where people encounter Jesus, choose to follow him, and become fully alive.

We are missionary disciples helping all people to know, love and serve Christ and His Kingdom. Our mission is to make disciples of all nations, starting here, starting now.

Meet our pastor, Fr. Mike

Fr. Michael Leclerc is no stranger to the St. Ignatius community. This was the parish where he grew up, where many of his friends still reside. This was the place where he was most comfortable, most at home. 

However, upon his assignment in 2016, he quickly realized it was no longer the vibrant parish of his youth. Since then, Fr. Mike has been committed to the transformation of not only, our commmunity, but the entire city of Montreal. 

Transforming our city, by transforming parishes to transform lives

In 2022, St. Ignatius of Loyola reached an important milestone: a missionary partnership with another parish, St. Willibrord. At one point in its history, it was the largest English-speaking Catholic parish in Canada, but when it reopened after COVID, only 20 people came back to Mass.

After some discernment, 27 missionaries were sent from St. Ignatius to renew St. Willibrord. Now, a year later, the community is slowly growing with a weekly attendance of around 150.
