Faith and Justice
Promoting Faith and Justice
The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice took place on November 4-6, 2017, in Washington, D.C., uniting nearly 2,000 individuals eager to learn about Ignatian advocacy efforts and talk about social justice concerns in a Catholic context. The attendees were mostly young adults, representing 26 Jesuit colleges and universities, 49 Jesuit high schools, 7 Jesuit parishes.
70 faith-justice leaders from East Coast Jesuit communities, high schools, and colleges and universities gathered in September 2017 to discuss how Ignatian discernment can guide our faith-justice efforts during times of instability. Together, they focused on ways to integrate Ignatian discernment into their justice work, drawing on the call from the Jesuits 36th General Congregation.
Jesuit institutions from across the Northeast Province have joined the Campaign for Hospitality, committed to creating more welcoming and hospitable communities for immigrants and refugees. Five Jesuit apostolates spanning parishes, high schools and universities have joined as institutional members to create spaces conducive to solidarity and meaningful encounter with those most in need.
The Jesuits, in affiliation with the Ignatian Solidarity Network (ISN) created the Ecological Examen, a website that serves as a practical tool for prayer, reflection and action focused on the care for creation and the most vulnerable. Individuals and groups have praised the Examen for its innovative approach, its spiritual depth and its profound clarity.
