The Ignatian Year at Fairfield University

The Ignatian Year at Fairfield University

Ignatius of Loyola, S.J., venerated as Saint Ignatius of Loyola, was a Spanish Catholic priest and theologian.  May 20, 2021 marks the 500th anniversary of St. Ignatius’ conversion — that fateful day when Ignatius the soldier, severely injured by a cannonball during the Battle of Pamplona, began his spiritual journey.  From May 2021 until July 2022, Fairfield University invites you to celebrate this Ignatian Year, and reflect on your own life as an opportunity to see God at work in us and in the world around us.  This display features items on loan from the Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality, and from Rev. Paul Rourke, S.J., Vice President for Mission and Ministry, as well as other members of the Fairfield Jesuit community.  The exhibit runs from January - May 2022.
