Finding God in All Things

The followers of St. Ignatius were sent from Europe to Africa, Asia and the Americas, and their records of interactions with local people have helped shape our understanding of cultural history. In that light, we often pause to look closely at a specific culture to celebrate the unique contributions of that community to our world. Some recent presentations have included:

  • Black History Night of Culture
  • Israeli Consul Visit
  • Turkish Henna Night
