Ignatian Heritage Month


While the month of November often brings to mind images of falling leaves and the Thanksgiving holiday, members of the Loyola community participate in Ignatian Heritage Month, a month-long celebration that highlights the living legacy of St. Ignatius Loyola.

“The whole purpose of celebrating Ignatian Heritage Month is to deepen the understanding of how the Loyola community is animated by the Jesuit Ignatian tradition,” says Chris Murphy, director of staff mission formation and faculty and staff chaplain.

St. Ignatius Loyola—a man of deep faith whose life was dedicated to helping others—encouraged his followers to do the same and serve humanity. And that’s the exact message Loyola hopes to convey throughout November.
