2017 resources for St Ignatius’ feast day

St Ignatius – the founder of the Jesuits – is celebrated in the church on July 31st every year. In commemoration of all the inspirational things he has done, Jesuit Missions has designed an exciting resource for his feast day.

An ideal end-of-term informative and reflective activity, this comprehensive resource delves deep into the life and teachings of St Ignatius. Over the course of three, 3 hour classes, students will be introduced to the basics of St Ignatius life and teachings, analyse his ideas on the meaning of life and conduct their own ‘Examen of the year’ using the Take and Receive prayer.

Lesson 2

Lesson 3 

Available for download here for primary schools and here for secondary schools

Both for primary and secondary school students, the resource aims:

  • To deepen students’ understanding of St. Ignatius, the key aspects of his spirituality (the Examen) and explore how it could be important to them.
  • [Not only will these lessons inform students about St Ignatius, they will also engage them in activities that develop their JPP skills]
