In the Jesuit tradition, St. Ignatius Parish School provides spiritual formation as the integral connection to the academic, social, emotional, and physical development of the whole child. Through opportunities of service and reflection, we encourage our children to respond to the invitation of St. Ignatius of Loyola to find God in all things, live for the greater glory of God, and live the Magis as they become young men and women for others.
To fulfill our mission of nurturing the soul and faith life of the children of our school community, St. Ignatius School provides liturgical services, retreats, sacrament preparation, formation, and service opportunities.
What is “Magis?” [pronounced "màh-gis"] It is a Latin word for “more,” and is taken from the motto of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam” which is translated, “For the Greater Glory of God.” Magis is a key element of Jesuit spirituality, inviting us to do more and to become more in the hope of offering greater service. The Jesuit tradition calls us in all matters to seek the greater good, the magis and become men and women for others.
We want to share this special prayer with all our parents. The eighth grade class worked together to write a modified version of the Prayer of St. Francis. They used Ignatian ideas to add reflections to the prayer. They led the school in this beautiful prayer after today’s Mass.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Help our St Ignatius Community be mindful of
one another and Find God in ALL things.
