Tour of Jesuit schools in Scotland and the North of England

February 28, 2022

Two Jesuit Novices were invited to speak at Jesuit schools in Scotland and the North of England. They had some great feedback from the pupils and staff...

"I really enjoyed the talk as it was very thought provoking, especially with the way it was delivered with power point slides."
"I think it's important for Jesuit pupils to hear Novice's speak as it gives students an alternative perspective on life and hear other's experiences."
"The thing I found interesting was the first speaker's story and how it made the rest of the talk more relatable and easier to listen to. The most significant reason why I think that it is important for Jesuit pupils to hear Novices speak is that it provides the pupils with a more relatable way of growing in their faith, similar to you [Stonyhurst chaplaincy] or the forerunners at Worth."
"I enjoyed the talk last Thursday very much, it was very inspirational. I like that the speakers were using their personal experiences as Jesuits’ Novices and the changes through their life journey and sharing them with us. It was a pleasure to be invited to hear about their experience."
"For Jesuit students and for me who were raised under Jesuit Education (10 years in Hong Kong, 2 years in Stonyhurst), it is really helpful to hear these kinds of spiritual sharing and it is helping us to build up our spiritual mind. I look forward to hearing another Novices’ Talk."
"I found the first talk on pilgrimage interesting, and really enjoyed hearing about his experiences on the road relying on the kindness of others."

A talk that was given to the schools, titled, 'Pilgrimage, Happiness, and our Deepest Desires', is available (click on the link below).

The PowerPoint presentation that was given is also available as a PDF (click on the link below).
