It’s a time when we honor the memories of those who have passed, especially those dear to us who have died in the past year. The wonderful Dick Ellis, Joanne Welter, and Ruth Ballas are just a few of the people whose memories we celebrated this past All Souls Day.

Grateful for a wonderful time at the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. We were thrilled to participate in the 25th Annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. The 2022 event gathered members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and larger church) to be empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked. You can view recordings of the sessions here.
