Year of Impact Banner 2

At some point over the next few weeks, many of us will hear or sing the well-known carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” with its lists of numbers and gifts. As the calendar year draws to an end, we too felt inspired to share our own list of numbers and gifts. The different faces of the Ignatian Center's work inform and, we hope, inspire those students, faculty, staff, and global community members who are involved with our Center. Seeing these numbers laid out side-by-side, our story is clearly one of hope, inspiration, transformation, and gratitude here, there, and everywhere

Wishing you all the blessings of Christmas,

Rev. Dorian Llywelyn, S.J.
Executive Director
