Cultivating Holy Space
~Jennifer LaMaster, Brebeuf Jesuit  
Jennifer LaMaster , Assistant Principal and Mission and Identity officer at Brebeuf Jesuit, writes about how she develops and cultivates personal, professional, and spiritual growth within the faculty and staff, as part of her job. "Many of us have this written in our mission statements and aim to foster intercultural communication in our students, but what about our faculty?" Jennifer describes Brebeuf’s two-year faculty formation program in this article published on Educate Magis.

I nterculturality is where it's at! Have you read the Universal Apostolic Preferences ? “Young people experience the tension between the drive toward cultural homogeneity and the emergence of an intercultural human society that respects and is enriched by diversity. The logic of the market economy leads to homogeneity, but young people aspire instead to diversity that corresponds to the exercise of true freedom and opens up creative spaces that contribute to the emergence of a humane, intercultural society.” (Universal Apostolic Preferences 2019)

The Ignatian Run 
~Ariel Laguilles, Gonzaga College High School
On May 27th, I am attempting to be the first person to run the entire 400 mile-long Camino Ignaciano route . The route retraces St. Ignatius’s journey from his home in Loyola to the cave in Manresa, where he spent a year developing the Spiritual Exercises. With the support of  Varsity Tours , I plan to run an average of 50 miles a day to complete the entire route in 8 days

I am a product of Jesuit education, an Ignatian educator, and a competitive ultrarunner. I see this experience as an opportunity to expand and blend these aspects of my life. I approach this unique journey with joy and excitement -- welcoming the challenges,  revelations, and moments of grace that it will surely bring

St. Paul's High School ventures onto the Camino Ignaciano
~ Rob Puchniak , St. Paul's High School
This July, a small group of students and faculty from St Paul’s High School in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada , will be undertaking the Ignatian Way Pilgrimage in Spain from Loyola to Manresa, alongside their fellow Jesuit students and faculty from Brophy Prep in Phoenix, Arizona . This will mark the first year that a group from St Paul’s will participate. The cohort is eager to meet their brethren from Brophy (pictured below), visit the sacred sites connected to the life of Ignatius, and walk in his footsteps, under the direction of  P. Josep Lluís Iriberri S.J. , director of the  Camino Ignaciano . Members of the St. Paul’s contingent range in age from Grades 9 through 12. There is hope that this pilgrimage will become an annual event for members of the St Paul’s community and invigorate the Jesuit identity of staff and students alike.
