70th Congregation of Procurators

St. Ignatius of Loyola, looking at the hard labour and distraction could involve, discouraged meeting of General Congregation at definite intervals (Const. n 677). But later clarified that the Superior General maintains communication with the Society through letters and through the persons who should come from the provinces, at least once every three years from each province (and every four years from the Indies) (Const. n. 679).

The 70th Congregation of Procurators took place in Nairobi, Kenya, earlier this month, coming to an end on 15th July. You may access the dedicated website sjwebcp70  where you will find plenty of reports, images, videos and podcasts.

Fr Joseph Cassar SJ, Procurator for Malta, was in Nairobi since 28 June, in time to take part in the
preparatory retreat for the Congregation. 
He wrote, 'The atmosphere here is nothing short of extraordinary.'
