After a great pilgrimage to Poland last summer as part of preparations for World Youth Day, the Irish Jesuits are organising another Magis (more or greater) event this summer for young adults aged 18-35. Taking place in Ireland from 22 – 29 July, 2017, participants can choose between 2 options: a pilgrimage from Dublin to Glendalough or a faith and ecology experience in Wicklow Town. The group will be joined by other young people from Europe.

Jesuit Conference Asia Pacific (JCAP) established Reconciliation with Creation, a comprehensive program that aims to enable greater environmental awareness and participation in caring for all forms of life. As part of this program, Jesuit pastoral ministries with the poor and beyond are integrating social and ecological objectives.
Father Arturo Sosa, elected last 14 October as the 31stsuperior general of the Society of Jesus during the 36thGeneral Congregation, is calling for a “reconciliation in the world” that means “we have to strive for reconciliation between human beings, reconciliation with God and reconciliation with the created world.” Jesuit responses to a rapidly changing world, environmental concerns, poverty, and violence are challenging its worldwide ministries.
