  • In Honor of Our 150th Anniversary, We Are Bringing Back the WALK!

    For many years, in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, students led the charge of fundraising efforts thru the Walk for Ignatius. Each student had a manila envelope in which he/she collected money that financed school improvements and the operating budget. As part of our 150th anniversary, we are pleased to return to this tradition, but this year our Walk is sesquicentennial act of service.

  • Ignatian Values Day I – New Videos

    Bishop Joseph Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago, graciously accepted an invitation to join us for Mass of the Holy Spirit. Building upon his visit three years ago, Bishop Perry will once again offer some reflections on the rich history of The Venerable Fr. Augustus Tolton and the context of his ministry in Chicago around the time Fr. Arnold
    Damen, S.J., our school’s founder, and his companions were in their first years at 1076 Roosevelt Road. CLICK HERE to watch Bishop Perry’s Homily.

    Our first guest speaker of the day was Ellen Skerrett, a historian of Chicago and its neighborhoods with a special interest in Irish America. Ms. Skerrett helped frame the context of the city of Chicago when Fr. Damen arrived and, through illustrations and stories, paint the beginnings of SICP 150 years ago. CLICK HERE to watch her talk.

    Our new Saint Ignatius Parent and Alumni program offers a variety of programs for all in our adult community who desire to deepen their commitment to Christ and His Church. Our goal is to support all in their call to mission, in and to the world, and to share the message of Christ in order to renew and to transform both their personal as well as social commitment to the Gospel. Accordingly, we here at Ignatius seek to help each adult believer become "more willing and able to be a Christian disciple in the world."*
