Provincial Visitation 2017

Each year, the Jesuit Provincial Superior visits each of the Jesuit communities and works of the province.  This is a custom and practice established by St Ignatius himself.

The purpose of the annual Visitation is to create and sustain a strong link between the centre (the Jesuit curia) and the various institutions of the province, including the schools.

Through the Visitation (and, of course, in other ways throughout the year), the Jesuit identity and mission of the school community is affirmed and strengthened as the school is invited to give an account of the work it has done “living and learning for the greater glory of God and the common good.” (St Ignatius, Constitutions n.440)

The Visitation is also an important occasion when the Provincial, on behalf of the Society of Jesus, can recognise and celebrate the good work done, and thank everyone in the school community for what they have achieved.
