St. Ignatius Movie Night: An Ordinary Hero – Friday, January 13 – 7:30 PM – As part of our Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. week of focus, the St. Ignatius Catholic Community Racial Justice Forum will present the documentary An Ordinary Hero on Friday, January 13th at 7:30 PM in Ignatian Hall. An Ordinary Hero is the amazing true story of one woman’s courage to help change the world. By the time she was 19 years old, legendary Civil Rights Activist, Joan Trumpauer Mulholland participated in over three dozen sit-ins and protests. She was put on death row in Mississippi’s notorious Parchman Penitentiary with other Freedom Riders. She was involved in one of the most famous and violent sit-ins of the Movement at the Jackson Woolworth lunch counter and helped plan and organize the March on Washington.

Ignatian Morning of Reflection Mini-Retreat – Saturday, January 14 – 9 AM – The Ignatian Morning of Reflection this month will dovetail with our focus on MLK week. This morning retreat will be a time to reinvigorate our call to justice and peace as a beloved faith community. There will be song, talks, prayer, time for meditation and group dialogue.  We will pray for God to order our next steps in promoting nonviolence, justice and peace.  We will examine our Christian call to walk with  and advocate on behalf of the poor, the oppressed and the marginalized.  We will answer the call individually and as community to live our lives through the faith we proclaim and the intercession of our community of saints.  Our morning will conclude with the celebration of the Eucharist. Come join us! Plan to join Fr. Bob Hamm, S.J. and Toni Moore-Duggan for a very special time.
