This year, Cardoner Tertianship House in Dublin celebrates its 10th year anniversary. 10 years of forming Jesuits. To make this event extra meaningful, to remind us of this great endeavor and to encourage us to be more zealous and faithful to our mission, the community had a tree planting ceremony with John Dardis. John Dardis, SJ is the president of Conference of European Provincials. He celebrated the farewell mass then had the final blessing on the site where we planted the “Cardoner¬†Tree.”

Jan Van de Poll, SJ, our instructors and our chef, Tommy led the tree planting. Jan and Tommy have been with the program since it started in in 2006. They are living witnesses of Jesuit formation in this house.
