From 1632 to 1673,

Jesuit missionaries in New France – as Canada was known – wrote letters to their superiors in France describing not only their missionary work but also their observations about the life and times of the local people. These widely read letters were published each year as The Jesuit Relations.


Today the Jesuits in Canada along with our collaborators and friends write articles for igNation − a blog which observes our present time. Come walk with us as we write about our culture, our daily lives, our seasons and our spirituality.
