July Is for All Things Ignatian

Ignatian Tools for the Modern World: A Webinar with Fr. Joseph A. Tetlow, SJ; Eric A. Clayton; Fr. Kevin O’Brien, SJ; Vinita Hampton Wright; and Fr. Michael Rossmann, SJ - headshots of each author

Those of us at Loyola Press get a bit excited every July. Why’s that? Well, it just so happens that July 31 is the feast day of our patron, St. Ignatius of Loyola. Each year, we use the entire month of July to celebrate all things Ignatian, and this year is no different!

For starters, I invite you to join me for a free webinar aimed at identifying how Ignatian spirituality is needed in the 21st century, perhaps even more than it was needed 500 years ago when Ignatius developed his Spiritual Exercises. Our panelists are Fr. Joseph A. Tetlow, SJEric A. Clayton; Fr. Kevin O’Brien, SJ; Vinita Hampton Wright; and Fr. Michael Rossmann, SJ.
