All Things Jesuit

Jesuits International

August 15, 2017

Jerónimo Nadal, S.J., one of St. Ignatius’ companions used to say “the whole world is our house,” in reference to the international scope of the Society of Jesus and its ministry.

In that spirit, a good portion of the globe was represented when these six Jesuits, hailing from five different nations, recently broke bread together in SU’s Arrupe Residence.

Clockwise from top: Daniel Fernandez, S.J. (India); Pat Kelly, S.J., (U.S.); Trung Pham, S.J., (Vietnam); Isidro Lepez, S.J., (Mexico) with his back to us; Frank Savadera, S.J., (Philippines); and Viet Tran, S.J., (Vietnam). 

All pictured Jesuits are members of SU Jesuit community, except Father Fernandez, who was in town for the Justice in Jesuit Higher Education conference

(Thanks to Patrick Gilger, S.J., for taking the picture and Fr. Kelly for sending it in.)
