A Letter from the Provincials, Fr. Thomas A. Lawler, SJ, and Fr. Timothy P. Kesicki, SJ
When we visit with Jesuits in their golden years, we are inspired by the example of their lives, their accomplishments in ministry, and their approach to life. They exhibit a peaceful sense that their service to the Church and the Society of Jesus has been, and continues to be, a great gift. (view story)

“…it took me just a month to realize this was going to be a truly wonderful experience. I taught a full load of classes, coached debate and speech events, and even, non-jock that I was, helped in the spring with the school’s track and field team. It was in this period that I became an adult in the Society of Jesus.” Fr. Robert Wild, SJ, looks back on his experiences as a Jesuit, and the call that brought him to the Society of Jesus at the age of 17 ½. (view story)

“There are so many good causes, but at the end of the day, Monica and I want to feel we are making an impact in a handful of places. The Jesuits provide the opportunity to make that impact, and we feel privileged to share our blessings with them.” Tim and Monica Hanley’s lifelong connections to the Jesuits have shaped their lives, and the lives of their four children. Tim offers a reflection on the gifts that he has received, and the gifts he is able to share. (view story)
