Celebrating Jubilees of Service

Each year, the Society of Jesus marks the milestone anniversaries of its members with Jubilee celebrations. This year, the USA Central and Southern Province has 33 members celebrating 25, 50, 60, 70 or 75 years from entrance or ordination. 

In the sidebar to the right, you will find the photos of the three men celebrating 50 years as a Jesuit. Click on an image to read a brief profile of each man.  

In the lists below, if a name is underlined, it functions as a link to a reflection that man wrote.

We give thanks for the faithful service of each of the Jubilarians of this province. Please join us in praying for these Jesuits.
