Jesuit Education and Service - Honoring St. Ignatius of Loyola at CTK
The purpose of a Jesuit education is to give students the tools to answer one of life's most important questions: "What does God want from me?" Far from being a question easily answered on a homework assignment or test, this can only be fulfilled through a person's life work. Whether it's an advanced degree, starting a family, traveling to another country, or creating a business, Jesuit-educated students seek to use their skills, talents, and interests to change the world and in so doing serve the Lord and their fellow brothers and sisters.
We are celebrating our 2nd Annual Jesuit Legacy Day to honor our school's Jesuit heritage and mission on St. Ignatius of Loyola's 529th birthday on Friday, October 23rd.
Please join us for a virtual Mass at noon on Friday, 10/23. Mass will be broadcast on CTK's YouTube and Facebook pages.
Make a Gift to Sustain the Jesuit Legacy at CTK
We encourage you to make a gift in St. Ignatius’ honor to support CTK's Campus Ministry and service-learning opportunities. Our goal is to raise $20,529 to help fund these important experiences for our students. Our Campus Ministry programs include retreats like Kairos and Peer Ministers, a student-led group that guides our school Masses and prayer services. CTK students also participate in a variety of service and social justice programs throughout the school year and summer months. From Jesuit Day of Service with other Chicago-area high school students to serving people living in the Appalachian region, our students care for their neighbors near and far.
Because of you, our students continue growing as men and women for and with others. Your financial support of Campus Ministry and service-learning at CTK ensures that our students have a holistic educational experience and inspires them to use their gifts for the betterment of others - friends, families, neighbors, and beyond.
The first 50 people who make a Jesuit Legacy Day gift will receive a CTK Jesuit branded mask, like the one on our St. Ignatius statue!
