I am an Indonesian Jesuit working as a missionary in Japan Province. I have been in Japan since the year of 2000. Now I am working at Elisabeth University in Hiroshima teaching Christian-Islamic Anthropology.  I am very happy to join the Tertianship Program in Dublin.  It is a precious opportunity for me to study in this School of The Heart.

EOF, France

I was born in 1974 in France ; after studying engineering, I entered the Society in 1999. Having discovered the strength of the Word of God in my life, I specialized as a Biblical scholar after my ordination (2010). I am now teaching the Old Testament at Centre Sèvres (Paris) ; there, I hope I can let students discover the strength of this text, and enter in an intellectually critical way of thinking about faith and life.

A Time to Conclude

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.
