Santo Domingo Intercontinental Gathering of Social and International Ministries

The Intercontinental Gathering of Social and International Ministries held this month in the Dominican Republic was an extraordinary meeting bringing together for the first time Jesuits and those working with them from Canada, US, Mexico, Central America and the Antilles.  The working languages were Spanish and English and the lively exchanges on ecology and extractive industries, inequality, violence and migrants were thought provoking and inspiring.  Attached are two personal reflections by attendees Marco Veilleux and Fr. Eduardo Soto Parra, SJ. 

Please read more on the meeting's Facebook page. Those who attended from our province will meet to debrief and plan follow up in mid-May.
