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!
