Ignatian Year Opening Mass: May 20, 2021

The Ateneo de Manila University, together with other Jesuit universities and institutions all over the world, is celebrating Ignatian Year from 20 May 2021 to 31 July 2022. This is a special time for both Jesuits and lay collaborators in mission as we commemorate that significant moment when Saint Ignatius was hit by a cannonball, beginning his journey to conversion which since then has blessed all of us with his unique spirituality and way of proceeding.
The University began this celebration with the Ignatian Year Opening Mass held at 8am on 20 May 2021 at the Church of the Gesu. Father Primitivo Viray SJ was the presider and Father Roberto Yap SJ was the homilist.
