All Saints Day

All Saints Day - featuring Jesuit saints

There are dozens of Jesuit saints and many more named blessed, not to mention the many unofficial saints—men and women—who have lived Ignatian values in inspirational ways. We remember these Ignatian holy people in a special way on All Saints Day, All Souls Day, and the feast of All Saints and Blessed of the Society of Jesus (November 5).
