Gonzaga Prep 's freshman class had some fun in the foliage at the Freshman Spark Retreat!
The JSN Presidents & Trustees Cohort Gathering last week in Minneapolis was attended by 71 presidents, 23 trustees, 5 PASE, Fr. Tim Kesicki, and Father General’s Secretary for Education. The major themes discussed were Presidents in their role as Directors of the Works of the Society of Jesus and Jesuit schools' stances in these divisive times. There were vibrant, wonderful conversations throughout the days with plenty of time for folks to catch up with one another, and this is the first time the Presidents & Trustees Gathering has featured a visit to a Cristo Rey school ( Cristo Rey Jesuit - Twin Cities ).
