January 6, 2020 — For several days in late December, approximately 60 Jesuits in formation – from novices to those who have been preparing for priesthood for more than a decade -- gathered in the desert. The formation meeting, which was attended by Fr. Scott Santarosa, SJ, provincial of Jesuits West, was held at the beautiful Redemptorist Renewal Center in Tucson, Arizona. The agenda included both programmed meetings as well as free time for hiking, reading and catching up. Check out the short video below with images from the Tucson gathering.
December 6, 2019 — Provincial Fr. Scott Santarosa, SJ, challenged Jesuits West leaders to flex its “Jesuit muscle” against injustice. This fall, Jesuits West ministries did just that, taking action to advocate for the environment and immigrants.
