About the Company of Grace
In 1543, while in Rome, Ignatius established the House of St. Martha, a ministry dedicated to women living on the margins, mainly those trapped in prostitution. At the same time, he established the “Company of Grace,” a confraternity of lay people who became involved in the ministry, and were its earliest supporters. Today in St. Louis (alongside 26 other cities throughout the country, dozens of women and men volunteer in the ministry of ISP. On May 29th, we will honor Srs. Marian and Marion as champions against the injustice of homelessness and continue to build this modern “Company of Grace.”
