Beyond MU: ‘An Insight into the Memoirs of St. Ignatius’ is Oct. 12 

Beyond MU: Lifelong Learning will host a webinar titled “An Insight into the Memoirs of St. Ignatius of Loyola with Fr. Barton Geger, S.J.” on Tuesday, Oct. 12, at noon. Register online. 

The webinar will be presented by: 

  • Rev. Barton Geger, S.J., assistant professor of the practice at the School of Theology and Ministry, Boston College 
  • Dr. Kathy Coffey-Guenther, Arts ’85, Grad ’88, ’98, senior mission and Ignatian leadership specialist, University Advancement 

As we continue to celebrate the Ignatian Year, join us for a virtual conversation with Rev. Bart Geger, S.J., editor of the most recently published A Pilgrim’s Testament: The Memoirs of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Learn more about Father Geger’s inspiration for this project and what he learned along the way. 

Early Jesuits urged Saint Ignatius of Loyola (1491–1556), founder of the Society of Jesus, to share the story of how God had worked in his soul. His memoirs, they hoped, would inspire and guide Jesuits and other readers for years to come. Father Geger provides a new introduction and original annotations for this edition of A Pilgrim’s Testament which includes fascinating notes that accompany this important text, making the autobiography of Ignatius of Loyola more accessible to all.
