St. Ignatius


Just Us Cats

Dear SI Alumni and Friends,

Happy New Year! It sounds a bit hollow to say that today and it already feels a little like last year. But know that our collective resiliency is well-formed and we will ride out this variant wave just as we have in the past. 

We'll come out on the other side - Stronger Together.

We have all had a chance to recharge and nourish ourselves with family and friends over the holidays, for some it was the first time connecting in two years.

It brings into focus just how fragile it all is and how we need to realign ourselves to what really matters: family, friends, faith, and of course good health.

Our newest video covers the topic of team chemistry. What is it? How do you make it? How does it increase performance? We asked Joan Ryan, author of Intangibles, Unlocking the Science and Soul of Team Chemistry ( to help us understand it. Maybe you can use it to increase the performance of your team. As Ignatians we all have chemistry with one another, no matter the age, gender or difference. It's what makes SI a special and unique educational and life-long experience.

We are also going back to Spring Training this March 11 and 12 for two games against the Dodgers and Angels. Sign up today and we'll see you in Scottsdale!

Reunions are back! After a one year hiatus, SI class reunions are back in full force. The classes of 1951, 1956, 1971, 1981, 1986, and 1996 have already gathered (safely) to celebrate another five years since their graduation from St. Ignatius. Their smiles, hugs, laughs and stories filled the rooms with a joy and enthusiasm that we’ve all missed over the past 18 months.

Curt Mallegni '67 Honored with Christ the King Award

The SI Alumni Board recently met and selected this year's recipient of the Christ the King Award.

The Christ the King Award honors SI alumni "who have distinguished themselves in their professions, who have shown a commitment to the SI community and who best exemplify the ideal of service to God and fellow man."

Curt Mallegni of the Class of 1967 was such a man and is a well-deserving recipient. Curt passed away on January 28, 2020, after a short illness. He was 70 years old. He is only the fifth recipient to receive the award posthumously since the award originated in 1960. His wife Kathy will receive the award in his honor.

Here is a story about Curt Mallegni's wonderful life and great contributions to SI in Genesis by Paul Totah.
