Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice
Be The Light Youth Theology Institute at Canisius College is proud to announce that we will be attending as well as assisting through sponsorship the 20th annual Ignation Family Teach-In for Justice in Washington D.C. - from November 4th-6th!
The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and members of the larger church) to come together in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together. It is a place where people are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked. The Teach-In is a program of the Ignatian Solidarity Network.
Why We Gather
We gather each year in the spirit of the Jesuit martyrs of El Salvador, who along with their two companions were murdered in at the University of Central America in 1989. Together, we commemorate their lives and ministry and seek inspiration to discover the injustices of today and how we might engage in them.
Applications for the 2017 are available in the Campus Ministry office, OM 207 and are due by Tuesday, September 19 by 5pm.
