Mission Week 2023, following the theme of “Act with Kindness,” runs through Saturday, Feb. 11.

When St. Ignatius wrote letters of instruction, he often asked those that he wrote to to be considerate and kind. He and the first companions created the Society of Jesus to take God’s ministry out into the world. By empowering others to “go, set the world on fire,” he ignited a movement that, over 500 years later, has global reach and impact.

During this week, consider taking action by attending one of the many Mission Week offerings. Whether it be opportunities to listen to inspirational speakers, participate in service, pray, worship or reflect and take time for silence each day.
