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.
