Hundreds Gather for Jesuits Friends and Alumni Sunday 2018

On October 20th and 21st, more than 700 Jesuit-educated alumni and friends of the Society gathered at 24 parishes and schools for the fourth annual Jesuit Friends and Alumni Sunday Masses. They joined the more than 2,000 men and women for others who have attended in previous years.

Jesuit Alumni Sunday was started four years ago as a way of bringing together alumni of Jesuit schools and friends of the Jesuits across the generations to rekindle their connection with the Society and each other. Liturgies are followed by receptions where participants can learn about the Ignatian programming in their area and meet program representatives. 

More than 50 Jesuit institutions worldwide were represented at the Masses including a number of apostolates spanning the country well beyond the East Coast – from Jesuit High School in New Orleans, to Creighton University in Nebraska and Marquette Universityn in Wisconsin.
