Ignatian Week 2023

Campus Ministry Office
Next week we will celebrate Ignatian Week from Monday, March 13, to Thursday, March 16. This week is a time of celebrating and learning about our Ignatian identity. Our theme is, Living the Magis: To live in community, walk with the vulnerable, and build hope in the world! 
We look forward to a week of prayer, fun activities, chats with Jesuits at the border and other parts of the world, walking with the vulnerable, and connecting with creation. There are service opportunities for high school students on March 17th (no school day); to register, click here to view the padlet.
To walk with the vulnerable this week, we will use the symbol of the Red Chair (Silla Roja - Fe y Allegria International) in the classrooms, to remind us of those who are in need throughout the world and invite us to prayer and action. Additionally, there will be grade-level FLEX activities to engage students in service and learning, fundraisers for JRS Syrian Earthquake victims, and we will also continue to collect for our Lenten Drive.
The culmination of our weeklong celebration will be Ignite the Night on Thursday, March 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Garrido Family Plaza. The event will feature a concert by local contemporary Christian band, The Call. Families are encouraged to attend this night of praise and worship.
Get in the spirit with your Iggy socks!  Proceeds from all St. Ignatius socks will go to Jesuit Refugee Services for Syrian earthquake victims! Wear your Iggy socks on Thursday, March 16, and show them off at Campus Ministry to be entered for a special raffle! Purchase them by clicking here.

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
