2013-2014 Theme Magis


 (Latin for "more.") The "Continuous Quality Improvement" term traditionally used by Ignatius of Loyola and the Jesuits, suggesting the spirit of generous excellence in which ministry should be carried on.

We are committed to the examined life; therefore, we strive:  To seek for a greater knowledge of all creation.  To reflect on our own lived experience of the world.  To discern the movements of our heart and reason.  To listen to the experience of other people.
