Time flies–this is the common experience of all the Tertians especially after they came back from the placement. And it creates a sort of sentimental feeling.
Having completed the study and reflection on the last parts of Constitutions, GC 36 and Final Vows, the Tertians had a workshop on Jesuit Formation and Personal Growth from the view of developmental psychology. The program was well appreciated.
Now, from the evening of May 8th, Tertian will start a 6-day retreat to collect the fruits of the entire Tertianship. Please join their prayers so that the formation received by Tertians in past nine months may continue to bear lasting fruits in their life.
After Christmas break, the Cadoner House returned to its normal daily routine on January 2. First of all, the community studied Ignatian Spiritual Exercises based on their previous experiences. Then, there were a series of lectures, workshops and discussion on affectivity and priesthood. Finally, Fr Jose de Pablo introduced the Conference of European Provincials, followed by the presentations on the Jesuit Conference of South Asia and the Conference of Asia Pacific. In between, the Tertians also participated in the Rhetoric Parent Day of Clongowes Wood College.
From January 18 on, the Tertians start their 10-week long experiment in different places inside and outside Ireland. They will come back to Cadonar House after Easter.
