Education is Essential

COVID-19 has presented a tremendous challenge for Saint Ignatius High School to balance our mission of providing an academically rigorous, Catholic, Jesuit education along with the health and safety recommendations of leading healthcare experts. On Monday, March 15, students returned to full-day, in-person learning.

Mission Trips

The Fr. Thomas Gafney, S.J. ’50 Mission Trip Program sends students to domestic and international destinations in pursuit of service, learning and faith-formation. These summer immersion experiences are open to students after sophomore year.

Launched in 1997 and named after alumnus and martyr Fr. Thomas J. Gafney, S.J. ’50, the mission trip program offers students an opportunity to directly encounter the poor and marginalized, just as Jesus did. Through domestic and international destinations participants practice prayer, service, reflection, learning and looking for God in all things, people and places.

Most trips are offered to students the summer before their senior year, but a couple trips also provide opportunities for rising juniors. Interested students must complete an application and, often, an interview, in order to be considered for a mission trip.

To learn more about mission trips, please contact Mr. Tony Krzmarzick.
