Re : Tertianship Leave
As announced last May, I will be going on leave to attend the Jesuit tertianship program. This will begin on Sunday, September 3. I also need to attend the Jesuit Conference of Asia-Pacific (JCAP) Education Secretaries’ meeting in Singapore from 29 August to 2 September.
Hence, I will already be on leave effective 29 August, and Fr. Xavier Olin, SJ, will begin serving as the Officer-in-Charge (OIC) – School President.
I expect to return to my duties at Xavier School in early March 2018.
The period of tertianship allows much time for prayer and reflection, especially during the 30-day Spiritual Exercises silent retreat that begins in late October. I will be keeping all of you in the Xavier School Family in my prayers, and I ask you to pray for me as well.
Thank you very much.
Fr. Aristotle C. Dy, SJ, Ph.D.
