About the event
Who is this Ignatius that founded the Society of Jesus and is the patron saint of our church? Why do we embrace his tradition of Ignatian Spirituality as a core aspect of our parochial identity?
Tomeu Esterlich, Director for the Center of Ignatian Spirituality at Boston College, will answer these questions and more in his presentation about Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the evolution of his spirituality and "way of proceeding."
Whether you are new to St. Ignatius Parish or have long been part of our community, we invite you to join us to become better acquainted with our patron saint!
