Feast of St. Ignatius, July 31

Thursday, Jul. 17, 2014

On Thursday, July 31, the University community will gather to celebrate the Feast of St. Ignatius with liturgy at 11:30 a.m. in the Mission Church followed by a picnic lunch on The Alameda Mall. This is a special tradition for Santa Clara and Jesuit institutions around the world when we honor the founder of the Society of Jesus and recall his unique spiritual gifts.

Ignatius left a legacy of spiritual practices that are grounded in our everyday lives and focused on actions that serve the greater glory of God. His was a mission of love, justice and a special concern for the poor, the sick and the hungry. As a community, may we be inspired by Ignatius' practice of seeing God in all things and in all people.

Please mark you calendars for Thursday, July 31, to celebrate our Ignatian roots.
