From May 2021 to July 2022, the Society of Jesus and global Ignatian family will celebrate Ignatius500.  The Ignatian Year commemorates 500 years since the conversion of St Ignatius of Loyola which began with his leg being struck by a cannonball, a moment that led to his mind and heart being transformed by the presence of God in all things.
