Peace of Christ! 

As we look toward the exciting future of a new province here at home and a new era for the Society of Jesus around the world, we give thanks for our jubilarians of 2017, especially our Golden Jubilarians. The generous and faith-filled lives of service they have offered and continue to offer the Church and the Society are an inspiration to all of us. 

Though these men entered our least Society at different times, in different places, and under different circumstances, they share a common vocation of service to the Church and world. They never could have imagined the many ways the Lord would call on them to offer their talents and gifts, but we are grateful that God did call them. Moreover, we thank them for their generosity and courage in answering that call. 

These pages contain a brief look at the many ways these jubilarians have encountered God’s love and shared that love with all those they served along the way. To read their reflections, simply click on any photo in the right-hand column.

As we gratefully remember them and all who have served the Chicago, Detroit, and Wisconsin Provinces, we pray that their example encourages each of us to give ourselves more completely to the mission of the Society of Jesus, that together in our new USA Midwest Province, we may love and serve the Church for the Greater Glory of God. 


In Christ,
