The vision of The Anglican Diocese of St. Ignatius Loyola is to raise up multicultural churches that are firmly rooted in the Anglican tradition and fully alive by the power of the Holy Spirit through preaching, teaching, worship and in the faithful administration of the Sacraments.
The patron of the Diocese is St. Ignatius Loyola (23 October 1491 – 31 July 1556), founder of the Society of Jesus. St. Ignatius was a Spanish soldier who was converted to Christianity while recovering from surgery after he was gravely injured by a hit to the legs from a cannonball at the Battle of Pamplona in 1521. His deep spirituality is captured in the work of the Spiritual Exercises. St. Ignatius also ushered in a missionary movement that spread Christianity throughout the world and saw 74 colleges founded on three continents by the time he died in 1556.
We seek to dedicate ourselves “Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam” (“to the greater glory of God”) in everything that we do as offerings to God as contemplatives in action – just like St. Ignatius.
