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.
