In a large part, this visitation was an examination of the results of that missioning. Fr. General visited Los Angeles, Seattle and the San Francisco Bay Area. He spoke with directors of the works from the Universities, High Schools, Parishes, and social apostolates across the Province. He met with Jesuits in each city, both listening to their concerns and joys, as well as sharing his own vision for the future of the worldwide Society as it continues to respond to the call for conversion found in the Universal Apostolic Preferences; a now one-year old mission from the Holy Father to the Society of Jesus.
Accompanying Fr. General from the Curia in Rome were Fr. Douglas Marcouiller, SJ (Regional Assistant for Canada and the United States), Fr. Tomasz Kot, SJ (Regional Assistant for Central Europe and Asia), and Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ (Jesuit Curia Communications). The US West Province was represented by Fr. Scott Santarosa, SJ (Provincial, US West Province) and Fr. Jack Mitchell, SJ (Superior of St. Ignatius College Prep in San Francisco, CA). Fr. Tim Kesicki, SJ represented the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States.
