The Jesuit Communication Centre has recently launched a Facebook page for the Irish Jesuits: www.facebook.com/irishjesuits. It will be used to keep people up to speed with Jesuit news around the Province and around the world. Everyone is invited, of course, to ‘like’ the page and to add comments.
October is Mission Month, and to mark it this year the Irish Jesuit Missions have produced a prayer card which features an image from Magis Ireland’s South African Volunteering Programme and a specially penned prayer relating the theme of mission to a prayer that God would fill the world with the consolations of faith, hope and love. You can download a PDF of the prayer from the Jesuit Missions website, or you can contact the Mission Office ([email protected] or 01 8366509) for printed cards.
