Ignatian Formation - Adult Faith Programs

The role of Jesuit High School's Ignatian Formation Office is to provide resources and offerings for the development of Ignatian Spirituality in parents, alumni, faculty and staff. Each year, we offer a variety of workshops, lectures, presentations, retreats, and prayer experiences.



Parent & Alumni Retreat

SAVE THE DATE: This year’s Parent & Alumni Retreat will be back at St. Benedict’s Lodge in McKenzie Bridge, OR from June 29, 2018 through July 1, 2018 (Friday to Sunday). Please join us for Spiritual Enrichment, good food, and relaxing natural settings. There will be plenty of outdoor activity opportunities from golf to hiking to river rafting to dozing in the sun on the expansive deck overlooking the McKenzie River.

Jesuit Volunteer Encorps

Jesuit High and Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC) Northwest are excited to offer Jesuit alumni and alumni parents a unique opportunity to serve the greater good of our local communities through service with others. At Jesuit High, we have witnessed the dedication and tremendous capacity of students and parents who have contributed to quality education at our school. We know that many of you desire to continue this tradition in ways that uplift our entire community.

JV EnCorps, a program of JVC Northwest, facilitates transformative opportunities for intentional service, community and spiritual formation for older adults committed to social and ecological justice. During their ten months of part-time volunteer service, participants ages 50 and older meet together regularly in community to deepen their spirituality and explore the Ignatian values of simple living and social & ecological justice.
