Jesuits in Canada

Last summer, the Jesuits of English Canada, together with a number of lay collaborators and some Jesuits from the French Canada province, joined with the Father General of the Society of Jesus, Fr. Adolfo Nicolas, for a congress in Midland, Ontario. The occasion was the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first Jesuits in Canada, and to pray, discern, and discuss directions for the future.

A short video was just released today on that gathering, which also serves to provide a certain portrait of the Society in Canada today:






For those with a little more time, here's a video of a talk recently given by Sylvester Tan, SJ, a Jesuit from the New Orleans Province, at Loyola College (New Orleans). It's on the question of "What is Jesuit Education? This, too, gives a certain portrait of the Society of the Jesus, from both a historical and spiritual perspective. Highly recommended.




Finally, I wrote a short blog article over at Ibo, our SJ scholastic group blog, on last weekend's atheist and papal gatherings, called A Tale of Two Rallies. We love to hear your comments on our site.

Thanks for reading!
