2019 Tertian Community

2019 Tertian Community

This year the tertianship group in Dublin consists of 11 members from 10 different countries. We gathered for the first time on September 16. We will be together until the end of May.

During this time we will share with each other our experiences of our jesuit vocations through the spiritual exercises, reflecting upon our foundation texts, sharing our stories of ministry, and through  different ministries.
