A Memo from Magis: Reconnecting with the Jesuit Mission
Posted by Amanda Kelly on Friday, October 28, 2011 at 9:09 AM PDTAre you a Seattle University Alumna/us living in the Puget Sound Region looking to connect with other Jesuit-educated alumni? Do you want to serve, lead, or reflect? If so, look no further…
“What is Magis?” The word Magis (pronounced mah-jis), literally meaning “more” in Latin, was a term used by St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, and calls us to not necessarily do more, but to be more, deepening who we are in the world.
Seattle University’s Magis program serves SU alumni, as well as all local Jesuit-educated alumni, helping them to stay meaningfully connected to a larger alumni community who cares about living out the Jesuit educational mission—through deepening their faith, serving for justice, and engaging in leadership. Magis provides programs such as: retreats, speaker series, book groups, community service opportunities, and much more! Programs are free or low cost, and are open to alumni of all backgrounds. By virtue of your Jesuit education, you are part of the greater Jesuit alumni family, and Magis intends to further support you as you continue to grow.
This month, in partnership with the Office of Jesuit Mission & Identity, Magis invites alumni to participate in an Ignatian 3-Day Silent Retreat from Friday evening, November 11 – Sunday, November 13 at Palisades Retreat Center in Federal Way, WA. To RSVP by Friday, November 4th, or for more information, email Magis.
