The Jesuits have opened a new novitiate in Haiti, a country that had outlawed Jesuits as recently as the 1980s. Ministry work is with migrants and in education.
Fr. Bélanger [of the province] is hopeful for the future of Haiti and what the Society of Jesus can accomplish there. “I’m very proud of what has been done by the Jesuits in Haiti over these last several years, especially since the earthquake. Our younger Jesuits, who are getting toward the end of their formation, you feel that they really want to make a difference for the people of their country, especially for those who have been neglected for a long time.”
We wish them success in their growing ministry.
