The Jesuit Social Justice and Ecology Secretariat Jubliee Congress will be celebrated at the Jesuit Curia in Rome, from November 4 to 8, 2019, and will bring together around 210 participants from all over the world selected by the six Jesuit Confernces across the globe.
The gathering will provide an opportunity for the international delegates to celebrate God’s faithfulness in the 50-year journey of the Jesuit Social Justice and Ecology apostolate and discern roadmaps to implement the Jesuit’s Universal Apostolic Preferences in the social apostolate context.
The Ignatian Solidarity Network will provide updates and reflections from the Congress throughout the week, including written posts, photos, etc.
