One Foot Raised

This year we invite you to follow in the footsteps of St Ignatius the Pilgrim, to walk on St Ignatius Day, 31 July 2024, with One Foot Raised.

One Foot Raised is Jesuit Mission's new supporter event, where participants partake in a challenge walk in solidarity with the people of Myanmar and raise funds for Jesuit Mission's Emergency Response work.

You can take part as a school, a parish, a group of friends or you can take on the challenge personally and set your own pace as an individual.

This is an opportunity to draw further inspiration from St Ignatius the Pilgrim.

St Ignatius himself described the ideal leader as living with "one foot raised," moving always into new lands and new cultures, ready to step forward and respond to human need and suffering in the world. 

We walk because Ignatius walked, we walk because Jesuit Missionaries walk alongside the marginalised and we walk because many children in Jesuit Mission supported schools walk long distances each day to gain a quality education.


Get involved today

Take action today and help empower women, men and children living in the margins
to live full and free lives.

Thanks! We'll be in touch shortly.
