Magis: Alumni Living the Mission
Posted by Amanda Kelly on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 10:22 AM PST
A Jesuit education can shape a person's life in more ways than one.
For Jesuit-educated alumnus Greg Forkins (Boston College 2010, Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest 2010-11), a commitment to finding God in all things is what has formed him, particularly in his work life as a personal banker. As he puts it "the Magis program has been a true blessing which keeps me connected not only with the mission of Jesuit education, but with other Jesuit-educated alumni who are also seeking the same thing." Visit Living the Mission to read Greg's reflection about the impact of Jesuit education on his everyday life.
Also, Magis brings you two great opportunities to pause and reflect this month: Alumni Day of Prayer on March 24 with retreat directors Carla Erickson Orlando and Fr. Pat Twohy, S.J., will feature the theme of compassion through Carla and Fr. Pat's lively storytelling approach; and Spirituality on Tap on March 28 will feature a young adult panel about what makes each of them come alive as they find God in the midst of life's opportunities. For more information and to RSVP, email Magis.
Lastly, as always, be sure to visit the Magis e-newsletter for information on other upcoming programs and events this spring. From retreats to education forums, Magis has you covered for faith, justice, and leadership opportunities!
