Jesuit Dallas - Ignatian Days

CLICK HERE FOR OUR APRIL ON-SITE IGNATIAN DAY

The last couple Ignatian Days have focused on concepts from the First Principle and Foundation. We have invited the students to acknowledge that "All the things in this world are gifts of God, presented to us so that we can know God more easily and make a return of love more readily." We have also invited them to consider that "if any of these gifts become the center of our lives, they displace God and so hinder our growth toward our goal." On April 11th, freshmen and juniors will engage in our second on-site Ignatian Day focusing on technology and social media. During this day, we are fortunate to have Dr. Kristen Ohlenforst from Therapy Dallas presenting to our students. In addition, our students will engage in a series of activities and discussions on technology and social media.

Our goal, as always, is to arm our students with knowledge to make health decisions and to help Jesuit families continue the ongoing discussions about wellness, boundaries, and addiction. Above all, we aim to lead our students towards the concluding words of the First Principle and Foundation of St. Ignatius: "Our only desire and our one choice should be this: I want and I choose what better leads to God’s deepening his life in me."
