Ignatian Pilgrimage to Spain
We invite you to join us on a spiritual journey from Oct 13-21, with 30 friends of America Media that will celebrate the life and spirit of St. Ignatius of Loyola. On this pilgrimage we will immerse ourselves in the adventure, the challenges and the profound experiences that were Ignatius’s life, as we visit the places important to him and his early companions.
We’ll call on some our local Society of Jesus brothers in Spain as we walk in the footsteps of Ignatius and visit Loyola, Aranzazu, Xavier, Manressa, Montserrat and Barcelona.
Finding God in all things is one of the maxims of Ignatian spirituality. And, we’d like you to be a part of this special journey. Keep your eyes open for the first digital updates and send us your prayer requests.
Matt Malone, S.J.
