New Magis program begins through the Jesuit Collaborative
Some are physicians.Some are teachers, counselors, deans and principals.Others are self-employed or work full-time at
home.But regardless of their
professions or backgrounds, more than twenty lay colleagues have recently committed
to embark with one another over the next 18 months on a spiritual and educational
journey known as the Magis program.
Organized through the Jesuit Collaborative, the Magis program is a structured and creative way for people to more deeply engage
in Ignatian spirituality, learn about the Jesuit Mission and Way of Proceeding,
and meet others with a similar drive to develop and grow in these areas. The program is spread out over 18 months and
consists of four two-day seminars, a three or five-day retreat, interim
reading, personal prayer and reflection.
Since so many of the participants work at a Jesuit apostolate, school or
university, gaining a better understanding of the Jesuit mission “a faith that
does justice” can help them become more effective in their daily roles.
The new Magis program recently began at the Loyola Retreat
Center in Faulkner, Md., and will also hold sessions at the Jesuit Center in
Wernersville, Pa. Read more

May 27, 2020 - Now more than ever, we invoke God to wipe away the darkness of anxiety, allowing us to be guided by the light of Christ and to trust in God’s promise of new life. Over the last few months, our Jesuit provinces have been in a place we don’t often find ourselves, a place that saw our schools closed, parishes empty, and the halls of our retreat centers giving new meaning to the word “silent.”
