Oct. 5, 2016 – On Tues., Sept. 27, 2016, over 100 golfers and supporters attended the 7th Annual Friends of the Jesuits Golf Outing at the beautiful Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, N.Y.
After registering for the day, guests had the opportunity to talk with Jesuits and members of the province staff. Fr. Charles Frederico, SJ, provincial assistant for vocation ministry for the Maryland and USA Northeast Provinces, led the golfers in prayer before the shotgun start.
When the golfers completed the course, they gathered for a reception where they had the chance to catch up with their fellow golfers as well as the Jesuits who came to represent the province. Fr. John Cecero, SJ, the provincial of the USA Northeast Province, spoke about the good work of the Jesuits and their colleagues and thanked the golfers for their generosity.
“Jesuits will continue to respond to the needs of the Church, and we can flourish because of friends like you,” said Fr. Cecero. “Thank you and God bless you for your generosity and goodness… and be assured that the Jesuits…and especially our Jesuits residents at Campion Health Center and Murray-Weigel Hall, pray for you every day.”
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. Group awards were given out for foursomes with the best scores.
The outing was a resounding success. We are grateful to our friends who supported the outing through their participation, sponsorships and donations.
