Ignatian Heritage Day

The roots of Ignatian Heritage Day go back to the long Catholic tradition of celebrating saints’ feast days. St. Ignatius of Loyola’s feast day is July 31, however, as the end of July tends to be a quiet time on campus, Regis began celebrating Ignatian Heritage Day in August as a way to gather and reflect together at the start of another academic year.

As part of this year’s Ignatian Heritage Day, the Office of Mission, in partnership with the Office of First Year Experience, will launch the One Book, One Regis series with shared thoughts and reflection on the book, Read Until You Understand. Interim President Cody Teets will then give a short talk on “Living the Jesuit Values.”

Schedule

9:30 a.m. Coffee and pastries on Fortune Plaza (outside the Chapel)
10 a.m. Program, led by the Office of Mission in the Chapel, including the One Book, One Regis launch and Interim President, Cody Teets
12 p.m. Lunch on Fortune Plaza

This event is open to all. RSVPs are appreciated and can be sent to mission@regis.edu.


The office of Mission created a reflection book to help guide readers through the journey of St. Ignatius and how we can incorporate some of the spiritual teachings he developed in our lives. View the reflection book >
