Education is Essential

COVID-19 has presented a tremendous challenge for Saint Ignatius High School to balance our mission of providing an academically rigorous, Catholic, Jesuit education along with the health and safety recommendations of leading healthcare experts. On Monday, March 15, students returned to full-day, in-person learning.

Saint Ignatius High School

Mass at Progressive Field

Our entire school community of students, faculty and staff will celebrate an outdoor all-school liturgy at 1:30 p.m. at Progressive Field on Thursday, May 20 celebrated by Bishop Malesic of the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland.
On Thursday, May 20, providentially the 400th anniversary of St. Ignatius’ cannonball experience in Pamplona, students, faculty, and staff from Saint Ignatius High School and Welsh Academy will celebrate an all-school liturgy at Progressive Field. The Most Reverend Edward C. Malesic, Bishop of Cleveland, will be our primary celebrant joined by our Jesuit community.

The day will include:
  • A shortened academic bell schedule
  • Blue blazers, ties, a white shirt, khaki pants and dress shoes for all students
  • An organized walk with adult supervision from our campus to and from Progressive Field
  • And a beautiful outdoor all-school liturgy
After mass, students will return to campus where they will be dismissed. Parents will not be allowed to pick up students from Progressive Field.
