St. Ignatius of Loyola

”ST. IGNATIUS YOUTH PROGRAM IS A BLESSING, IT IS TRULY A FAMILY -
I have so many great friends here. My religious faith has really grown through this program; Ms. Jen has really helped put things into a younger perspective. There are 30 kids in the high school group and my favorite part is our talks. We learn so many different things and we can really discuss anything. If the program wasn’t here I would just go home after school and be bored. Youth Group and Church take up a large part o f my life.”

– Cameron Coles, 16 years old

“ I am a lifelong parishioner of St. Ignatius of Loyola in West Philadelphia. For the last 16 years I have worked as the coordinator for the parish food pantry. We have about 125 people visit the food pantry on a monthly basis. We have clients who have been coming to the pantry for years – they sit out in the cold, in the rain, to receive their food. Many people are on food stamps – we give them a little extra to help them get by. I personally donate to the Catholic Charities Appeal to help St. Ignatius Parish. WHEN I DONATE, I ACTUALLY SEE WHERE THE MONEY I S GOING TO – TO HELP OUR FOOD PANTRY.

– Gloria Ayers, St. Ignatius of Loyola Food Pantry, Coordinator
