With Others. For Others. The Campaign for Senior Jesuit Healthcare

Dear Friends,

Since the creation of the new Midwest Province, it has been a great joy to travel throughout the 12-state region to meet with Jesuits and visit our ministries. Along the way, I have been honored to meet many existing and new friends and benefactors. I am filled with gratitude for the good work we do together, and I have deep hope for our future. The Jesuit mission is alive and well in the Midwest. 

Following the ordination of 13 new Jesuit priests this past summer, 15 young men professed their first vows, and we welcomed 7 novices into the Society (see pages 4-5). I am confident that these Jesuits will continue to live out the example set by St. Ignatius in their new roles and studies. Please join me in praying for these Jesuits as they strive to set the world on fire!  

In this issue of Jesuits magazine, you also will learn more about our With Others. For Others. Campaign for Senior Jesuit Healthcare.

As we face a record number of senior Jesuits in need of healthcare, this $25 million capital campaign is essential to meet our healthcare needs today and for the future. Your vital support is a way to give thanks to the Jesuits who have positively impacted you and so many others through their lives of service.

During this season of Thanksgiving and New Life, please be assured of our gratitude and prayers.

I thank you for your consideration and prayers. Also in this issue we celebrate some of the ways the Jesuits and our lay colleagues are serving at the frontiers through theatre, prison ministry, Native American ministry, and much more.


Sincerely yours in Christ,

 (V. Rev.) Brian G. Paulson, SJ Provincial, USA Midwest Province
