A Message of Thanksgiving and Joy

Dear friends of the Ignatian Center,

On behalf of all of the Ignatian Center staff and student fellows, I offer a simple message of thanksgiving and joy. At our recent staff Thanksgiving celebration, we reflected on your ongoing support of the Center and its mission with much appreciation and gratitude.

We are also grateful for the SCU community - students, faculty, and staff - that encourage and inspire our work each day. Hearing about the impact of our programs from those who take part is truly life-giving. From student Fellows discerning their vocation during their fellowship, to faculty and staff Mission Integration Grant recipients pursuing their passions in the name of Jesuit education, there is truly much to inspire and celebrate. 

For me, the shortened hours of daylight that this time of year provides is actually a gift, allowing us to pause and reflect. In the early darkness of Advent, the lights of the upcoming holidays and the promise that they bring fill us with hope and gratitude.

May you be filled with that light and promise this holiday season - here, there, and everywhere.

Alison Benders
Executive Director, Ignatian Center
Vice President, Mission & Ministry
