AMDG Program

Want to get a taste of the great Jesuit education our sons are getting?  Want to understand these "Ignatian" ideas so you can reinforce them with your son at home?  AMDG is a program that gives parents a chance to learn about the teachings of St. Ignatius, founder of the Jesuits.  For all adults in the SLUH community, AMDG offers of series of four talks, on Thursday nights, spread throughout the school year.  Each event typically starts with a Mass at 6:30 p.m. followed a talk by an excellent speaker and a short small group discussion.  Over the years our speakers are taking us through the chapters of "What is Ignatian Spirituality?" and making them practical for us. But each evening is a stand-alone event: you can come to any one of them (whether or not you've read the book) and get a great deal out of it.

As a parent, I've watched SLUH mature my sons from boyhood into manhood - including in their faith.  Thanks to AMDG, I haven't just watched from the sidelines, but I've gotten to be a part of their faith journey.  Join us for one evening or many and jump in the game with your sons, too!

Please reach out to me if you have questions or want to connect.

For the Greater Glory of God and the spiritual health of our families, we gather to learn about the spirituality of St. Ignatius, growing closer to God and one another in faith and friendship. Each talk will explore a different chapter of the book What is Ignatian Spirituality? by David L. Fleming, SJ '52, available for free online HERE.


If you were unable to attend this session, HERE is a video from the talk by Mr. Chuck Hussung, SLUH English Teacher.  He spoke on the topic of the evening:  "Seeking the Grace of Compassion."
