Ignatian Year 2021-2022: a year to celebrate the anniversary of the conversion of St Ignatius

In a letter written to Jesuits on the 7th September 2019 Fr. Arturo Sosa, Superior General of the Jesuits wrote:

“In 1521, while Ignatius was convalescing at his family home in Loyola from the wound that damaged his leg at the battle of Pamplona, God brought about his conversion and put him on the road that led to Manresa. Together with our friends and the whole Church, the universal Society wants to remember that privileged moment when the Holy Spirit inspired Ignatius of Loyola in his decision to follow Christ, and to deepen our understanding of this pilgrim way in order to ‘draw fruit’ from it.”

There will be many activities throughout the year both nationally and internationally. Our hope on the organizing team is to keep you updated and encouraged so that at the end of the year we will all be able to say we have “drawn fruit” from this anniversary in some concrete way and perhaps, that we “see all things new in Christ” as Ignatius did.
