Sept. 23, 2021 – On Tues., Sept. 21, 2021, nearly 100 golfers and supporters attended the 2021 Friends of the Jesuits Golf Outing at the beautiful Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, N.Y.
For more than a decade, the Friends of the Jesuits Golf Outing has raised funds to support men in formation as well as senior Jesuits. Despite last year’s outing being canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these events have collectively raised more than $3 million.
Fr. James Keenan, SJ, director of donor relations for the USA East Province was on hand to not only greet golfers but to also say that opening prayer at the start of the day. View the full prayer below.
When the golfers completed the course, they gathered for an outdoor reception where they had the chance to catch up with one another and representatives from the province. The guests were then treated to a lively auction and placed bids for the chance to play on some of the best golf courses in the country.
At the close of the evening, Fr. Joseph O’Keefe, SJ, the provincial of the USA East Province, thanked donors and talked about what the province is able to do thanks to the support from the outing. “For my part, on behalf of the USA East Jesuits, please know that you are deeply appreciated and that you are in our prayers.”
After a brief hiatus, this year’s outing was a resounding success. We are grateful to our friends who supported the outing through their participation, sponsorships and donations.
