"Jesuit schools are to create opportunities for students to ‘bump into’ the person of Jesus." Over 120 Jesuit school principals gathered in the Loyola Retreat Centre from 27th February to 2nd March to discuss the challenges and opportunities that the religious plurality in Europe pose for their schools in the countries they serve. The objective of the Jesuit Secondary Education Conference (JECSE) this time was to discuss the question “Can we talk about Jesus – Jesuit schools in a multi-faith context?” P. Ferenc Holczinger SJ, Hungarian delegate and member of the steering committee noted that education is a priority and significant structure for the Society of Jesus in fulfilling their mission, as it was emphasized by Fr General Arturo Sosa SJ at the congress for Jesuit education delegates held in Rio de Janeiro in October 2017.

In continuity with the JESEDU global meeting in Rio, our purpose is to deepen the way of being Ignatian in a secularised context.
