Jesuit Alumni Sunday

Oct. 25, 2016 - On Oct. 22 and 23, 13 Jesuit parishes in the Maryland and USA Northeast Provinces participated in Jesuit Friends and Alumni Sunday by celebrating special Masses and receptions for over 450 Jesuit-educated graduates and friends of the Society.

These Masses provided opportunities for friends and alumni, joined together in their shared Ignatian heritage, to foster a common bond, while highlighting opportunities for continuing spiritual growth and service to the local and global community. The receptions gave everyone a chance to catch up with old friends and meet fellow graduates striving to be men and women for others.

This is the second year that a series of Masses like these have been celebrated. “Our hope is that we can make this annual event grow larger each year,” said Fr. James Miracky, SJ, provincial assistant for higher education for the Maryland and USA Northeast Provinces. “The response so far has been a positive sign.”
