400th Anniversary of Canonizations

As we celebrate this Year of St. Ignatius of Loyola (the founder of the Jesuits), we remember his emphasis in his Spiritual Exercises to meditate on the scene of our death beds as a way to discern what is truly important in the present. 

On Saturday, March 12, 2022, we will celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the Canonization of St. Ignatius. 

On March 12, 1722, St. Ignatius was canonized that day along with St. Francis Xavier, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Philip Neri and St. Isidore the Farmer.
