Midwest Jesuits Celebrate 2015 Golden Jubilarians

Dear friends,

Peace of Christ! 

On behalf of our two Provinces and the world-wide Society of Jesus, we would like to thank and congratulate all of our Jubilarians this year, especially our Golden Jubilarians, for the generous and faith-filled lives of service they have offered to the Church and the Society over many years. 


When these men entered the Society of Jesus, they may never have imagined the various ways that the Lord would call on their talents, gifts, and generosity in the service of the Kingdom of God. We are grateful to the Lord for calling these men into our Company, and we thank them for their generous and courageous response to His call.  

These web pages (click any photo at right) contain brief glimpses of how these men have encountered the Lord in their lives and in their ministry, sharing the Good News of God’s love with those they encountered along the way.


May their example inspire us to offer ourselves more completely to the mission of the Society that in all things we may love and serve the Church for the Greater Glory of God. 

In our Lord,

Fr. Brian Paulson, SJ 
Provincial 
Chicago-Detroit Province
  Fr. Thomas Lawler, SJ
