Re:       Society of Jesus General Congregation 36

_____________________________________________________________________

This week, the Society of Jesus gathered as a General Congregation (GC) is meeting in Rome. The Philippine Province is represented by our Provincial, Fr. Antonio Moreno SJ, and Fathers Bienvenido Nebres SJ, and Karel San Juan SJ.  A total of 215 Jesuits are participating, representing the approximately 16,000, Jesuits throughout the world.

This GC is only the 36th in the 476-year history of the Society of Jesus (founded in 1540). A GC is convened to elect a new Superior-General and to set priorities for the entire Society of Jesus. Like Fr Peter-Hans Kolvenbach before him, Fr. Adolfo Nicolas has offered his resignation citing health reasons.

As GC 36 unfolds in Rome in the coming days, I ask for your prayers for the entire Society of Jesus, that we may be receptive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

The deliberations at GC 36 will have a direct impact on our educational mission. I encourage all to keep abreast of the developments there by visiting the official website, http:gc36.org/.

Thank you very much.

 

Fr. Aristotle C. Dy, SJ, Ph.D.
School President
