Ignatian Heritage Week 2022

Seeing All Things New in Christ 

The year’s Ignatian Heritage  Week is an opportunity to continue our celebration of the Ignatian Year, marking the 500th anniversary of the conversion of St. Ignatius, with the theme of Seeing All Things New in Christ.  During the week we reflect on the life of St. Ignatius, the experience of being part of Jesuit education and how we each called to “see all things new in Christ” this year.   

The week will feature the following programs:

  • Virtual Ignatian Pilgrimage: Ignatian Heritage Week will kick off a semester-long Virtual Ignatian Pilgrimage. Through our Monday AM prayer, which will be broadcast live from the Prep chapel, our community will be invited to walk in the footsteps of St. Ignatius through the moments that led to his transformation from Ignatius the soldier to Ignatius the pilgrim and ultimately the founder of the Society of Jesus.
  • Talking All Things Ignatian with Fr. Marchionni: In a student-led interview, Fr. Marchionni shares about the Ignatian year, the life of Ignatius and his own vocation to the Jesuits. The interview will air on social media on January 28th and be viewed in an upcoming mentoring period.
