A Global Companionship Initiative of the Jesuit Schools Network
Dear JSN Companions:
The Virtual Congress of the 2017 JESEDU Global Conference launched at the start of this month within Educate Magis, and more than 200 responses have been submitted to the three themes set forth...

Tradition: A Call for Innovation

Presented by David Laughlin
President of St. Louis University High School

Caring for our Common Home

Presented by Benedictus Hari Juliawan, SJ
Secretary for Social Ministries and Coordinator for the Migration Network, Jesuit Conference of Asia Pacific

Sent in a Global Network

Presented by Jose Alberto Mesa, SJ
Secretary for Education, Society of Jesus

On March 14-15, eight Ignatian Educators from the JSN met to experience together the Virtual Congress theme presentations on the Educate Magis website. 

We watched the videos and read the presentations. 
We prayed together
We then spent a day discussing how to engage our schools in the responsibilities of global companionship through our Jesuit network of schools around the world. 

Last week, Bill Muller SJ, Executive Director of the JSN, sent a communication to all presidents and principals that shared the collective response of this group.
- Coming Soon -
Hemispheres 2.0
What does it mean for our schools to be in companionship with the world?  We will start to define that more specifically, both for our institutions and the community members within them.  

  • How might our Grad at Grad be impacted?
  • What is suggested by General Congregation 36 and our core documents?
  • How will the Virtual Congress inform us?

If you're interested in helping the Jesuit Schools network with Hemispheres 2.0, please contact Tim Sassen by simply replying to this email.  

The Jesuit Schools Network initiates programs and provides services that enable its member schools to sustain their Ignatian vision and Jesuit mission of educational excellence in the formation of young men and women of competence, conscience and compassion.
