Ignatius500: Young Adult Gathering
In May 1521, Ignatius of Loyola was hit by the most influential cannonball in history. During his recovery, he experienced a conversion that ultimately led to him founding the Jesuits. To mark the 500th anniversary of this event, the Jesuits invite young people to come and hear about what we've done in those intervening 500 years.
