On July 21, three Georgetown Prep faculty - along with twelve faculty and staff from Jesuit high schools around the country - embarked on a 12-day Camino Ignaciano. They will be led by Father Jose Luis Iriberri who also led seven Prep students and two faculty members in 2017. The Camino follows the 640 km pilgrim route taken by Íñigo López de Loyola (who later became Saint Ignatius of Loyola) in 1522 from his home in Spain’s Basque country to Montserrat and Manresa. Our pilgrims will walk virtually the same route that Ignatius did, pass through many towns that he passed through, pray at churches where he prayed, and marvel at the same natural wonders that he saw. There will be opportunities for prayer, personal reflection, spiritual conversation, and sharing in small groups.

Mr. Matthew Fitzgibbons, Modern Languages Department
