"God created us

to praise, reverence, and serve God

and in this way to save our souls.

God created all of the rest of creation

to help us achieve the purpose for which God created us."  - St. Ignatius of Loyola


This fall in IGNITE, we will celebrate the year of St. Ignatius by diving in to the uniqueness of who we are through the beatitudes! Though the words of Thomas MErton, Mary Oliver, Oscar Romero, and many more, IGNITE this year will accompany some who are praying the exercises through SEEL, some who are exploring their faith through RCIA, and some who simply desire to set aside a bit of time for prayer and fellowship. I invite you to pray about participating in IGNITE as part of your faith journey!  More information will come out in August!  Contact Grace to join our mailing list!
