Mary Ward Retreat 2018 in Via Nomentana 250, Rome

When the invitation was sent out on “a first come, first served basis“ to members of the IBVM, the Congregatio Jesu and Mary Ward friends around the world to a Mary Ward retreat in Rome, the 30 places were booked up very quickly. The retreat began on Tuesday May 8 and has lasted one week. Each morning the participants meet at 9:00 for a talk given by Patricia Harriss CJ. Then there is time for private prayer. In the afternoon, the participants visit places connected with Mary Ward in Rome. Each evening, Magdalen O’Neill IBVM gives an input on historical documents related to Mary Ward’s life. Pilgrimages to Naples and Perugia, where Mary Ward opened schools in the early 17th century, have also been part of the programme.
The photos show Magdalen O’Neill IBVM, one of the organizers, checking her list to ensure that all the participants are present to set off on the pilgrimage to Mary Ward places round Rome in the afternoon, and some of the retreat participants. (text and photos/eka)

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)
