Together with you we are celebrating the Ignatian year with a pilgrimage through Ignatius’ life called Erromeria.

Erromeria is Basque for festive pilgrimage.  Ignatius came from the Basque region of Spain, and we will take a journey through the gifts of Ignatius’ life and spirituality.

Our Erromeria map marks the places we will be visiting during our year-long virtual pilgrimage. Next month, starting in Loyola, we will share our own stories of the places.

The Ignatian Year is a celebration to commemorate 500 years since the conversion of St Ignatius in 2021 and 400 years since the canonisation of St Ignatius and St Francis Xavier in 2022. The year will open on May 20, 2021, the anniversary of Ignatius’ injury at Pamplona and conclude on July 31, 2022, the feast of St Ignatius.

We will be offering an online series of stories about key stages and turning points of Ignatius’ life, and the relevance of this to our lives, places, and times, including questions for you to reflect upon for your own life.

Our thanks to the voices of JISA, Spiritual Directors and Givers of the Spiritual Exercises in all their forms who have come together to create contributions for our Ignatian Year celebrations!

We warmly invite you to come along on Erromeria with us!
