AMDG: Ignatian Spirituality for SLUH Parents

Do you want to get a taste of the excellent Jesuit education your son receives? Would you like to understand these "Ignatian" ideas so you can reinforce them with him at home?

AMDG provides parents an opportunity to learn about the teachings of St. Ignatius, founder of the Jesuits. For all adults in the SLUH community, AMDG (or Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, a Latin term meaning For the Greater Glory of God) offers four events each school year. 

The events typically start with a Mass at 6:30 p.m. followed by a talk by an excellent speaker and a short small group discussion. Each talk explores a different chapter of the book What is Ignatian Spirituality? by David L. Fleming, SJ '52, available for free online HERE.

NOTE: Each evening is a stand-alone event. You can attend any one of them (whether or not you've read the book) and get a great deal out of it.

If you want more information or would like to be part of the AMDG team, please contact us at

"As a parent, I've watched SLUH form my sons from boys into faith-filled men. Thanks to AMDG, I haven't just watched from the sidelines – I've been able to be a part of their faith journey. Join us for one evening or many and learn about Ignatian spirituality just like your sons do."
