Ignatian solidarity Network
The Ignatian Solidarity Network provides Jesuit high schools and colleges opportunities to engage in fruitful discussions and events connected to Catholic Social teaching.
Through the Ignatian Family Teach-in for Justice, students travel to Washington DC with students from Jesuit high schools, colleges and apostolates to come together in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together. The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice began as a way of honoring the Jesuits and their companions who were martyred in El Salvador in 1989. Our students honor them by learning more about social justice issues that are impacting many throughout the world.
In addition to the Teach-in, the Ignatian Solidarity Network also invites student leaders to gather for their annual Arrupe Leaders Summit. The Arrupe Leaders Summit allows student leaders to deepen their understanding of “a faith that does justice,” share ideas and resources for social justice programming, and become empowered to effect positive social change in their local and global communities. Members of the Mission & Ministry’s Leadership Board will participate in the March Summit in Maryland.
