Jesuit History Presentation | 7 pm | Zoom
Our rich history dates back to 1540, when Saint Ignatius of Loyola founded the Society of Jesus, whose members are called Jesuits. For more than 450 years, Jesuits have focused on excellence in education, establishing schools and universities around the world. A Jesuit education inspires you to be your best self—to develop your talents to the fullest, to respect others, and to pursue justice. 

Join us as Fr. Fred Kammer, SJ, J.D., presents about Jesuit history and his experience in the Jesuit community.
