The Way of Ignatius

A five-day programme of prayer to lead you a

little deeper into Ignatian spirituality.

St Ignatius of Loyola, who founded the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) in 1540, with nine companions, was also the founder of a tradition (or 'school', or approach to prayer) now known as Ignatian spirituality.

Four years ago, running up to the Feast of St Ignatius (31 July), Pray-as-you-go took the form of a five-day "novena" (using the term a little loosely - a novena should be nine days!)  This was a programme of meditations in the Ignatian tradition, with each day building on the previous one, giving the user the opportunity to go a little deeper than is usually possible with the short, daily prayer sessions. 

With our new website, we have now set up this page as a permanent resource for you to use to access the Way of Ignatius all year round. Each section is listed below.
