Ignatian Heritage Month

Ignatian Heritage Month

Our Ignatian Heritage

ST. IGNATIUS OF LOYOLA ENCOURAGED HIS FOLLOWERS to seek God in all things, to serve those in need, and to become people for others. His mission can be seen in everything we do at Loyola—through students, faculty, staff, and our alumni. Every November, we explore this legacy and celebrate what Loyolans are doing throughout the year to live out St. Ignatius's call to serve others. Learn more about what it means to be a Jesuit institution.
