In the Pilgrim's Company: An Ignatian Storytelling Initiative

North America (AJCU)

To celebrate the Ignatian Year, the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States is launching a global Ignatian storytelling initiative entitled In the Pilgrim’s Company, a project that will take a fresh, innovative look at St. Ignatius’ autobiography. And we are inviting storytellers the world over to contribute their ideas.

This isn’t a simple rehashing of Ignatius’ own words, though. This is an opportunity to delve deeply into the character of one of the many people St. Ignatius encounters during his pilgrim journey – from those early pages stuck in bed with a wounded leg to the final pages in Rome beginning charitable works.

The storytelling challenge is to identify a character from the autobiography – other than St. Ignatius – and explore their thoughts, motivations and perspectives on the would-be saint.

There will be two submission periods: March 1, 2021 through June 15, 2021 and October 1, 2021 through January 31, 2022. Selected submissions will be featured on throughout the course of the Ignatian Year (May 2021 – July 2022).

This project is open to anyone in the world, though at this time, all submissions must be in English.
