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 are gearing up for 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.
This year's Ignatian Heritage Month highlights include:
- Salvadoran Martyrs 25th Anniversary Events: Loyola University Chicago is honored to host Jon Sobrino, S.J., for a series of events commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Salvadoran martyrs.
- Ignatian Heritage Month Photography Contest: This contest encourages the Loyola community to submit original photos that honor the legacy of St. Ignatius Loyola.
- Hunger Week: This week seeks to raise awareness about hunger issues locally, nationally, and globally.
