70th Congregation of Procurators begins

St. Ignatius of Loyola, looking at the hard labour and distraction could involve, discouraged meeting of General Congregation at definite intervals (Const. n 677). But later clarified that the Superior General maintains communication with the Society through letters and through the persons who should come from the provinces, at least once every three years from each province (and every four years from the Indies) (Const. n. 679).

The 70th Congregation of Procurators is currently underway in Nairobi, Kenya, and you may follow it all closely through the dedicated website sjwebcp70  You will find updates, images and podcasts.

Fr Joseph Cassar SJ, Procurator for Malta, has been in Nairobi since 28 June, in time to take part in the preparatory retreat for the Congregation. He writes, 'The atmosphere here is nothing short of extraordinary.'
