The Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Fr. Arturo Sosa
S.J., has called for an “Ignatian Year” to celebrate the life of
St Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits.
The Year will open on May 20th, the 500th anniversary of when
Ignatius the soldier was injured by a cannonball in the Battle of
Pamplona. The Year will conclude on July 31, 2022, the feast day
of St. Ignatius. The peak of the celebration will fall on
March 12, 2022, the 400th anniversary of the canonization of St.
Ignatius and St. Francis Xavier.
Our Ignatian virtues for October are “Curious and Active.”
Students in a Jesuit school are growing to be curious about
everything; and active in their engagement with the world,
changing what they can for the better.
Thank you to our incredible community for coming together so
strongly this past weekend for Amazing Grapes! We were so
delighted to see everyone back in person. We truly enjoyed
bringing you an evening of great wine, food, and community.
PAL sports return for the 2021-22 school
year! Fall sports include: Boys
Flag Football, Co-ed Cross Country, and Girls Volleyball.
Need Athletic hours? SchoolSpeak (Athletics group) has many
opportunities to earn Athletic hours. If volunteering at
any event, families must be fully vaccinated or provide proof of
a negative Covid test. There are many volunteer hours
available that do not require vaccination or a negative Covid
“The goal of the spiritual life, as Ignatius conceived it, is to
“choose what better leads to God’s deepening life in
me.” This is a dynamic goal. We are to choose—to freely
unite ourselves with God. Most of the time this means that we are
to join with God in active work in the world.”
Sports are an integral part of the total religious and
educational program at St. Ignatius School. Come support St.
Ignatius while watching a 49ers game at Levi
stadium. A proceed from each ticket will go back to
support St. Ignatius Athletics. Ticket purchases do not
count towards fundraising credit.
Anyone who would like to volunteer their time at school, on a
field trip, or any activity that involves our students, MUST
complete an on line course provided by Catholic Mutual
THIS TRAINING IS MANDATED AND A CERTIFICATE MUST BE PRESENTED TO
