Some 215 people watched St. Ignatius of Loyola: Soldier, Sinner, Saint at the Third Annual Jesuit Film Screening on May 18 at the University of St. Michael’s College in Toronto.
The full-length independent film is based on true events and chronicles the life of a young Spanish soldier, Inigo, and his life prior to his conversion and founding of the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits.
Filmed on location in Spain and the Philippines, the movie was produced by the Jesuit Communications Foundation in the Philippines. The Foundation finds its roots in JESCOM, or the Jesuits Engaged in Social Communications, formed in New Orleans, in 1968. Today the Foundation produces high-quality print, broadcast and audio-visual materials for evangelization and education.
Thank you to the volunteers and all those who attended the screening and reception. All proceeds from this event will support our Jesuits in formation and senior Jesuits.
