Jubilee day for Peter Hackett SJ
Fr Peter Hackett SJ celebrates 75 years in the Society of Jesus today.
He entered the novitiate on 10th January 1942, at the age of 18, and spent most of his ministry in teaching. He was ordained in 1957 and was head master of Wimbledon College in the mid 70s and 80s.
Fr Peter now lives in the Corpus Christi retirement community in Boscombe Dorset. He will be celebrating his 93rd birthday in October. Fr Peter’s younger brother Paul is also a Jesuit, currently serving as a parish priest at Kingussie in the Scottish highlands.
Please join us in prayers of thanks for Fr Peter’s 75 years of ministry for the Church and the Society.
