Prepare for your time at the Teach-In with checklists, lesson plans, and more

Learn, pray, and advocate for justice at the largest annual Catholic social justice gathering in the United States.

The Teach-In is a place for members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and larger church) to be empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked. Now in its 22nd year, the Teach-In has a rich history rooted in honoring the Jesuits and their companions who were martyred in El Salvador in 1989.

At the 2019 Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice, we affirm Radical Hope and we prepare to take Prophetic Action. Despite injustice in the world, we gather in hope-filled expectation, seeking encounter. We place the witness of the Salvadoran martyrs at the forefront of our learning, prayer, and action. They stood with those at the margins of society at the cost of their lives, taking prophetic action that expressed God’s love for all people and all creation. And we join in community to find support in our common charge and strength in our diverse voices and perspectives.

Pope Francis reminds us that hope is alive in our daily lives because it is found in encounter, whether in prayer, community life, or in meeting each other.* Jesus calls us to live in hope—to live in expectation that justice will come and to encounter God’s people and creation each day.

As a people of Radical Hope, we trust in God’s promise—the promise of peace and justice, the vision of equality and dignity. We find our hope in Christ’s living message and model. And we honor the witness of the Salvadoran Martyrs.

As a people of Prophetic Action, we discern and accept the invitation to reveal God’s Kingdom. Guided by the Spirit, we read the signs of the times and join together to care for one another and our common home.

*Pope Francis, Homily at Casa Santa Marta, 10/23/2018
