April 12, 2020 — Like the rest of us, Fr. Scott Santarosa, SJ, Provincial of Jesuits West, is isolating at home this Easter Sunday with his Jesuit brothers at their community in Portland. In an effort to reach out to many different groups of people, Fr. Santarosa recorded a number of video messages for Easter, including this one for donors to the Province. They are such an important part of the work of the Province and are remembered this day and every day with gratitude.
