An Ignatian Journey to Spain

Join the Jesuits on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure - an Ignatian Journey to Spain and Lourdes set for October 1 - 11, 2017! 

We still have a few spots left, so register soon!

Under the spiritual director of Fr. George Witt, SJ, trip participants will explore the roots of the Society of Jesus and visit significant sites in the life of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuits. Whether pondering Ignatius' conversion near Pamplona, walking through San Sebastian Church and seeing the baptismal font where he was baptised, or standing before the Black Madonna statue in Montserrat, where Ignatius laid down his sword and set a new course for his life, your connection to Ignatian spirituality will flourish with each stop along the way. 

The trip begins with a tour and visit to the Shrine at Lourdes, including Mass celebrated at the Grotto of the Apparitions.
