The Ignatian Year 2021–2022

The Ignatian Year 2021–2022

We join the Society of Jesus and all who follow the ways of Ignatian spirituality in celebrating the Ignatian Year. May 20, 2021, the starting date for the year, is the 500th anniversary of St. Ignatius Loyola’s injury during the Battle of Pamplona, which ultimately led to his conversion from soldier to saint. During the year, we’ll mark the 400th anniversary of the canonization of St. Ignatius and St. Francis Xavier on March 12, 2022. The year concludes on the Feast of St. Ignatius, July 31, 2022.

While all the resources of can be helpful during this special year, the ones highlighted below are good places to begin our celebration. This page will be updated throughout the year. #Ignatius500
