The St. Ignatius Mission was built in the early 1890’s. This Catholic Church is unique because its walls and ceilings have 58 original paintings by Brother Joseph Carignano on them. The Mission Mountain Range is a beautiful backdrop of scenery behind the Mission Church. The church is located on the Flathead Indian Reservation. We have two very special paintings of the Salish Lord and Lord’s mother (in Native American form) that are located in the back of the Mission.
Next to the Mission, we have a museum and gift shop that displays Mission and Indian artifacts and sells religious items. We also have the log home which was the original Sisters’ residence when they first arrived.
The church is open for visitors 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM during winter months and until 7:00 PM during summer months. The cabins are open in the summer.
Sunday Masses are being celebrated at 9am and 5pm. Weekday Masses are Monday – Friday at 7:15 a.m.
