A delegation of Seattle University students participated in the 21st annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice, which was held Nov. 3-5 in Washington, D.C. and Arlington, Va. Organized by the Ignatian Solidarity Network, the gathering drew nearly 2,000 attendees from more than 125 institutions. 

This year’s theme, “Discipleship at the Crossroads,” was inspired by Pope Francis’ call “to get to know people, listen, expand the circle of ideas” to better journey together “towards the Good.” 

Two of students representing SU, Karina Comes and Rika Ilagan, got up on stage to sing a song they created with the Peace Poets, which you can watch here at about the 34-minute mark: 

Their performance was well received. “Folks I know from other schools were texting me from IFTJ to say how awesome our students are,” said JoAnn Lopez of Campus Ministry.
