Looking forward to GC36 in Rome

The beginning  of GC 36 in Rome on the 2nd October 2016 is an exciting event for the Society of Jesus.  It will elect a new General and discuss on how it can strengthen and refocus its mission in the world today.

 It is a world that has changed since General Congregation 35.  Two major changes which have occurred is the urgency of the ecology issue and the suffering of people living and fleeing from conflict zones.  Pope Francis has given great leadership on how the Church can respond to these issues.
