Jesuits West Hosts Day of Recollection for Formation Donors

A Day of Recollection for Jesuits West Province donors was held at The Jesuit Novitiate of the Three Companions in Culver City, Calif., on March 10. Father Thomas Rausch, SJ, T. Marie Chilton Professor of Catholic Theology at Loyola Marymount University, offered a presentation to attendees on his latest book, The Slow Work of God. Celebration of the Eucharist followed in the Chapel of St. Ignatius with Director of Novices Father Steve Corder, SJ, as principal celebrant, assisted by Father John Mossi, SJ, homilist, and Fr. Tom Rausch, SJ, concelebrant.

This appreciation event for donors who support Jesuit Formation was organized by Barbara Gunning, Jesuits West Province senior philanthropy officer for Southern California and Arizona in collaboration with the Jesuit Novitiate team of Fr. Corder, Father Tony Harris, SJ, socius, and Father Scott Coble, SJ, community minister.

During lunch, first-year Novices introduced themselves, sharing with attendees where they grew up, their previous position before entering the Novitiate and current apostolic ministry as a novice. At the conclusion of the Day of Recollection, Gunning thanked the benefactors for their important role of supporting the education and training of future Jesuit priests and brothers.
