Friends of Music
Art is the great cultural means of arousing our sympathies and removing our moral blind spots.
The pandemic, social uprisings, a divisive political climate, and economic recession have made 2020 a very turbulent and challenging year. Through it all, we have redoubled our efforts to keep the inspiration of music in our Masses, available to all online, and in person. We thank you for your gift of any amount to help us keep serving you through our Ministry of music. In these times, your support is needed now more than ever.
Give the Gift of Music
Concert Series Circle
Our concert series is not an endowed program. Each season we must raise the necessary funds to cover our artistic and operating expenses. Please join us in making these extraordinary performances possible. No contribution is too large or too small, and each one goes a long way to making certain that music will be ringing through this sacred space for years to come.
Parrella Memorial Organ Fund
The Joachim and Nancianne Parrella Memorial Organ Fund honors two beloved, deceased members of the St. Ignatius Loyola family and the greater musical community. Nancianne B. Parrella, 83, renowned musician, educator, and Organist Emerita of the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, passed away on June 2, 2019. Joachim E. Parrella, her husband of 55 years, an aircraft engineer-turned-choral director and logistician, died on April 28, 2013 at age 83.
Donations will be used for tuning and maintenance of the N.P. Mander Organ, funding the organ recital series, and maintaining the exemplary standard of musicianship of the Principal Organist at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola.
Advent & Christmas Music Fund
Music is a beloved tradition in our liturgies here at St. Ignatius. Through the many challenges of this year, we have redoubled our efforts to keep this tradition of music in our Masses, available to all online, and in person.
This would not have been possible without our family of dedicated supporters.
Thank you to the generous supporters of our music ministry.
