The Inigas Series
Recognizing and Celebrating the Contribution of Women at Fairfield University


St. Ignatius of Loyola was supported spiritually and financially by a group of women in Manresa, Spain during the 16th Century. This group of women called themselves "the Inigas" and committed their lives to living out the charism of Ignatian spirituality. This commitment is sustained today through the contributions of women students, faculty, staff, and alumni who are living out their vocations as Inigas in all walks of life.


The Reverend Anne Gardner ’82: A Journey of Faith
Monday, October 26
7 p.m.


The Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality welcomes Anne (Simmington) Gardner ’82 as part of the speaker series marking Fairfield's 50th anniversary of co-education. Reverend Gardner, having worked the majority of her career at two of Boston’s premier educational institutions — Harvard University and Phillips Academy, Andover — now leads the chaplaincy program at Harvard-Westlake, a private secondary school in Los Angeles.

Gardner is both an Episcopal priest and a freelance writer. Her forthcoming debut book, And So I Walked, recounts her journey of traversing the 500-mile Camino de Santiago de Compostela, an experience that explores how faith, family, and friendship both change us and sustain us.
