PRSC in Rome

1 May 2018 was the last day of the conference of all the Provincial and Regional Superiors and the Generalate of the worldwide Congregation of Jesus. During the last few days, we reflected and worked on topics leading to the General Congregation in 2020 and on how to deepen our efforts in the field of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation.  In addition, information concerning changes in different parts of the CJ was shared.  
There was a lot of personal reflection, work in groups and then sharing in the plenary. On Monday evening, we enjoyed a nice barbecue in our garden. 
After the evaluation, guided by Prisca and Elena, Jane closed this PRSC, looking ahead to the next meeting at the end of February 2019. She thanked all our translators, especially Marilù and Monica CJ, the sisters of the Roman community and all those who helped to make the conference possible. We concluded the conference by thanking the Lord, in a Eucharistic celebration, for His guidance during these days.  (text and photos/eka)

PRSC and ELM in Rome

All provincial and regional superiors as well as the two Generalate teams of the CJ (PRSC) and the Loreto Sisters (ELM – Extended Leadership Team) met on Friday 27 April in Via Nomentana. This was the second meeting of the two groups. Exactly one year ago, on 27 April 2017, the first meeting took place. Both congregations have Mary Ward as their foundress. Historical and political issues in the 19th century and in later times are responsible for the fact that the two congregations developed independently.
The General Superiors, Jane Livesey CJ and Noelle Corscadden IBVM, opened the day. Then Mary Wright IBVM gave an input in which she pointed out very clearly that in the history of both congregations there had again and again been efforts to come together – or rather there are letters and other evidence which show very clearly that they even considered themselves as one Institute, although they lived in different places and had to be careful of a diversity of jurisdictions by different bishops etc.
In the afternoon Elena CJ and Macarena IBVM invited us to consider in small groups the next steps which might be taken on our way to coming together. The joint day ended with the celebration of the Eucharist with Fr. John Dardis SJ, and a splendid dinner to which all were invited in the Generalate of the IBVM.
With music and dancing we started the afternoon and for all of us it became clear that we would do everything to promote our network.  (text and photos/eka)
