Friends of Music

Art is the great cultural means of arousing our sympathies and removing our moral blind spots.

Give the Gift of Music

The pandemic, social uprisings, a divisive political climate, and economic recession have made the past year very turbulent and challenging. 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 more than ever.

Support Music at St. Ignatius

During this challenging year, we have safeguarded the beloved musical traditions in our Masses, online and in Church. Please help support our Music program.

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.
