St. Ignatius 101
A fun little introduction to St. Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Jesuit Order


Throughout their years at Jesuit High School, your sons will be introduced to St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit Order, whose spirituality permeates our mission and identity.  We hope you enjoy the opportunity to become familiar with Ignatius’ story through this video, created by Fairfield (Jesuit) University. 

From the Jesuit Online Bibliography:  Who better than a Spanish olive to tell the story of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, and probably the most famed Spanish Basque of all time? This Monty Python-esque video gives the historical details of his life in a uniquely humorous way.
