Living the Mission
"If truly successful, Jesuit education results ultimately in a radical transformation not only of the way in which people habitually think and act, but of the very way in which they live in the world, as men and women of competence, conscience and compassion, seeking the greater good"
Ignatian Pedagogy – A Practical Approach
At the Mass for the North American Martyrs, the entire school offered a special blessing on the Portland Immersion participants (above), before they embarked on their four-day immersion in Portland. Immersion participants become “contemplatives in action.” Before, during and after trips, students are led through deep reflection so that they might better discern ways to actively engage with the world. The vision behind these trips is grounded in the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and made concrete in the documents and wisdom contained within our Jesuit tradition. Senior Emma Gallant, a participant in this past summer's Rosebud Reservation trip, then offered a reflection on her personal experience.
