Ordination 2015: Embracing the Future with Hope

From the Provincials
Dear Friends, 

During this “Year of Consecrated Life,” Pope Francis has asked the Church to “look to the past with gratitude, to live the present with passion, and to embrace the future with hope.” 

This summer the Midwest Jesuits, and indeed Jesuits throughout the world, have had a very special opportunity to respond to the pope’s call for reflection by conducting “province congregations” in preparation for the Society of Jesus’ General Congregation, which will take place in Rome in October 2016. The Midwest Jesuits of the Chicago-Detroit and Wisconsin Provinces who were elected to attend the regional congregations gathered at Loyola University Chicago to pray, reflect, and elect delegates to attend the upcoming General Congregation. 

This international meeting will be the 36th General Congregation since the time of Saint Ignatius and will include Jesuits from every region of the world. Delegates will also elect a new Superior General to continue the good work that Fr. Adolfo Nicolás, SJ, has accomplished in the role since 2008. The delegates will pray together and discuss important issues of our time, seeking the Spirit’s guidance on how the Society can best serve the needs of the Church and respond to urgent needs around the world.  Continue Reading Provincials' Letter
