Amazing, I have been to many churches in England,Denmark,Chicago, New York, San Francisco, and this church is amazing. Don't pass it by, you will be surprised at its beauty. Small does don't take away from its beauty, it just adds to the beauty.

Beautiful church with a rich history of the area and the important role the church played in mediating the white man invasion with the Flathead Tribes in the area.

If you're headed to or from Glacier Nat'l Park, take a few minutes and visit St. Ignatius Mission. It's right off Hwy 93; you won't be disappointed. It is a delightful and serene church set amidst the grounds of the original mission which dates back to the mid 1800's. The interior of the church is open all the time, and... More

Grounds include cabin originally built in 1854, plus info of history on place. That is nice. But what is amazing is mission... More

Our first visit to the mission was very inspirational. The hand-painted murals were extraordinary. I was happy that they had handicapped access inside the mission to accommodate my mother in her wheelchair.
