Book Discussion - A Pilgrim’s Journey: the Autobiography of Ignatius of Loyola




Ignatius' autobiography spans eighteen very important years of this saint's 65-year life—from his wounding at Pamplona (1521) through his conversion, his university studies, and his journey to Rome in order to place his followers and himself at the disposal of the Pope. These critical years reveal the incredible transformation and spiritual growth in the soul of a great saint and the events that helped to bring about that change in his life.

To continue the celebration of this Ignatian Year, we invite you to read Ignatius' Autobiography and attend this book discussion led by our associate pastor, Fr. RJ Fichtinger. The discussion will take place after the 10:30 am Sunday Mass. Mimosas will also be provided! Please sign up in advance below.
