Six Weeks a Jesuit

Date: Monday, July 7, 2014 to Monday, August 12, 2014

The Shrine of the Canadian Martyrs, Midland, ON

Place: Martyrs' Shrine, Midland, ON

A chance to live and work with the Jesuits as a help to discerning the possibility of a Jesuit vocation.

The participants will live with the Jesuit community that serves the Martyrs' Shrine in Midland, ON, and will work along side the Jesuits in the ministry of the Shrine. This is an opportunity to experience first-hand the lifestyle of a Jesuit, to live, work, pray, and share community with the Jesuits.

In addition to the experience both of community life and of apostolic service, the program offers participants time for personal prayer, private spiritual direction, input on the history and mission of the Jesuits in Canada and around the world, an introduction to Jesuit spirituality, input on the life of the vows, and so on.

Over the course of the summer participants will assist in a variety of works focussed on providing support and assistance to the people who come to the Shrine for prayer and spiritual refreshment and to learn more about the Jesuit martyrs of the 17th century who worked and died there.

Participants require the recommendation of a Jesuit vocation director.
