For the first time ever, Jesuit brothers will be electors at a General Congregation. One of them, moreover, will be the youngest elector at the current Congregation. Brother Stephen Power from England was elected by the Conference of Europe. He has devoted himself to the social apostolate, especially the Jesuit Refugee Service, and has worked in London, Sudan, and Kenya.Brothers at GC36Brothers witness to our common priesthood
