Ignatian Companions: A Parent-to-Parent Evening of Reflection

Throughout the 2020-21 academic year, we have offered Parent Evenings of Reflection which serve as a tool for our community to move forward into a hope-filled future despite the harsh realities of our times. 

These evenings are designed to help parents re-connect during our hybrid or shelter in place conditions by: 1). building stronger relationships with our families, each other, and with God; 2). supporting each other in the spirit of parental companionship by modeling St. Ignatius and his first companions; and 3). expressing gratitude for what we have gained and learned, while acknowledging and mourning all we have lost; 4). walking a parallel spiritual path with your sons who are experiencing similar spiritual offerings at FP.

All parents are invited to join this last program of the school year!

Theme: Grounded in Gratitude 
Date: Wed., April 21
Time: 7- 8:30 p.m.

View a testimony about the evening from Lisy Currier-Martinez P' 13, 17, 19.
