European Jesuit Provincials to meet in Merseyside
Comment Email Print
¬†Senior Jesuits from all over Europe will be gathering in Merseyside next week to discuss common issues that are of concern to the Society of Jesus across the continent. The meeting of European Provincials is taking place at Loyola Hall, Rainhill, from 20-26 October. It will bring together 36 Provincials and four Assistants for a series of meetings and presentations. The agenda will address various European topics; these will include refugees and the role of the Jesuit Refugee Service, the Jesuits' involvement in the 2005 World Youth Day, especially the Magis programme, and the work of the Catholic European Study and Information Centre (OCIPE) in Brussels. Father Mark Rotsaert SJ, since 2000 the President of the Conference of European Provincials and former Provincial of the North Belgium Province, is coordinating the meeting. Father Peter Hans Kolvenbach SJ, the Jesuit General, will not be attending, since he will still be at the Eucharistic Synod in Rome. On Saturday 22 October, the Provincials will be visiting Stonyhurst College ≠ the Jesuit school dating back on its present site to 1794 ≠ and Archbishop Patrick Kelly of Liverpool will celebrate Mass for them on Monday the 24th.
