Pilgrims’Progress: Journal Entries from a 60th Anniversary Pilgrimage – #1
On August 15, 2019, thirteen Canadian Jesuits will note their 60th Anniversary as members of the Society of Jesus. Two members of this group – Charlie Pottie Pate, SJ and David Eley, SJ – have chosen to make a special pilgrimage to mark the occasion. They have graciously agreed to share their journal entries and photos with igNation which will post them once or twice a week.
Dear family members and friends,
To celebrate our 60th Anniversary in the Society of Jesus (August 15, 1959), David Eley sj and I are doing a pilgrimage to the Scandinavian countries to visit our Jesuit and Ignatian ministries there and their cultural settings – in Denmark,, Norway, Sweden and Finland.
We will finish with our annual retreat at a Trappist monastery northwest of London, England. We will be en route from June 6 to July 4.
I will try to send a regular (if possible, daily) review of our day.
Feel free to share this with other mutual friends who might be interested. Please note my change of email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
And please pray for us.
