The members of the 2014 Ignatian Immersion travelled to Loyola the birthplace of St Ignatius last week as part of their course.  Here we saw the Manor House (or the Holy House as it is referred to) in which Ignatius was born.  Within this house is also the Conversion Room where Ignatius lay during his recuperation.  This is now transformed into the Chapel of Conversion, where the Immersion course pilgrims were privileged to have mass. The image to the left shows a sculpture by Lorenzo Coulault-Valera showing the convalescent Inigo turning to God, which is in this chapel.

The image to the left is an artist impression of the original Loyola Manor House.  The Bascilica of St Ignatius has been build around this house.
