Sept. 23, 2021 – On Tues., Sept. 20, 2022, nearly 100 golfers and supporters attended the 2022 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. 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 the 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 silent auction where they could place 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.
The beautiful weather and outstanding renovations at Quaker Ridge Golf Club added to the success of the day. We are grateful to Bill Miller, Chair, for his leadership and all the sponsors and participants, especially our Jesuits, who helped us convey the importance of the funds raised to the ministries of the province.
