USA West Jesuit Gathering

08-13-2017Pastor's LetterRev. Daniel J. Sullivan, S.J.

On Monday, July 31, we celebrated St. Ignatius Day in honor of St. Ignatius, founder of the Jesuit Order. In a message from the Provincial, Father Scott Santarosa, SJ,“Ignatius' impact is still felt today, nearly 500 years after his founding of the Society of Jesus. Today, Jesuits and our lay partners who walk with us in ministry are impacting the lives of people through education, Ignatian spirituality, and service to the poor and marginalized. We don't just meet people halfway, we go to them. We don't shrink from challenges, we rise to them. We change with the times, facing emerging needs head on, always grounded by our steady faith. Together, we are contemplatives in action. Together, in the example of St. Ignatius, we are a force for good.”
