Inspired by the Feast of St. Ignatius and a $25,000 challenge grant, we created a month long celebration to welcome you to connect with Loyola Institute for Spirituality. This month was about engaging one another to further our mission by sharing the gifts of Ignatian Spirituality in order to set hearts on fire with love of God for the world. Whether we saw you in person at one of our events or if you connected with us virtually through social media or any of our messages, we want to thank you for answering our call.
So, how did it go?
The number of events we held in our 31 days. Finding God in the Dark, Discovering Your Sacred Story, Ignatian Morning, Reflections, Mass, Meals & Social Events. There was something for everyone. Did you miss something you were interested in? Or, did you enjoy something so much you want to do it again? Click the links above to learn more.
With the support of new and existing donors we were able to achieve 64% of our fundraising goal for the month. We are incredibly grateful to all who gave a gift in honor of St. Ignatius of Loyola. You can still support LIS with a gift in any amount, simply click the yellow donate button below.
With every event we held came more and more people who wanted to engage with LIS. In addition to our board members and associates, we welcomed a diverse group of friends new and old to our campus. For some, this was their very first opportunity to get to know LIS. For others, they hadn't seen us in years. All were welcome and we can't wait to see you again soon!
Thank you for celebrating with us!
In addition to all of the above we reached out with weekly e-mail messages to inspire contemplation, invitations to participate, and social media posts to fill your feed with spiritual nourishment. We'll be continuing to reach out, so be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and join our mailing list below.
