The Ateneo de Manila, in cooperation with the Jesuit Communications

learn more about the spirit and tradition of Ignatius of Loyola.
Specifically, we would like to celebrate the power and gift of this man’s
legacy of Ignatian spirituality as it is and could be lived in our daily
lives. Typical Ignatian themes such as discernment, ethics, prayer,
leadership, social involvement, science, and art will be featured in this

It will be a whole-day event composed of plenary talks, panel discussions, a
Eucharistic celebration to be presided over by Archbishop Luis G Tagle DD
STD, a musical concert to be directed by Fr Manoling Francisco SJ, and an
art exhibit at the Fine Arts Annex which will be available for viewing the
whole day. Registration begins at 9:00 AM at the Irwin Theater lobby. The
first plenary talk will be given by Fr Jett Villarin SJ, the President of
the Ateneo de Manila University, at the Irwin Theater. The complete program

Some important reminders:
• Bring an umbrella. We are in the midst of our monsoon season and chances
are good that it will rain sometime during the day and evening.
• Wear comfortable shoes. One of the Ateneo de Manila's strategic thrusts is
environmental development and we encourage those who can to walk when
changing venues. Enjoy the stroll, the trees, the old and new sights, and
the company of friends.
• For those who cannot or can no longer walk long distances, e-jeepneys will
be available to shuttle participants.
• The Ateneo Grade School Cafeteria, the AMPC at the Loyola Schools, the
JGSOM Student Enterprise Center (JSEC), and Manang's (a.k.a. the
Clubhouse)—will be open for lunch and snacks. Please try to choose the
eatery closest to the venue of your next talk so that you will not be late.
A few concessionnaires will also be located at the Cervini Parking Lot
beside the Church of the Gesù.
• Arrive early for your talks. Priority seats for pre-registered attendees
will be made available to others 10 minutes before the talk begins.
• The Loyola Schools Bookstore will be open until 5:00 PM. Bring some Ateneo
souvenirs home with you.
