“Lifeline” in solidarity with…
A Holy Week Retreat presented by JCSA
What we are living because of the corona virus pandemic are harsh times for so many citizens all over the world, but this situation fosters creativity. The Jesuit Conference of South Asia (JCSA) is inviting everyone - and first of all to those who are confined at home - to engage in an Ignatian online retreat from 5 to 12 April (the Holy Week). It will use the Daily Life Model.
At this critical “Corona moment” of humankind, we dare to cling on to our life-line God, always labouring with us. In this context, the JCSA likes to accompany its people through a journey of eight days with Jesus on his way to Calvary, in solidarity with all who are, in some ways or other, distressed by the Covid-19 virus. We commit to battle this menace together, and for all in abiding HOPE.

Legend has it that St. Ignatius of Loyola sent St Francis Xavier off with the words “ite inflammate omnia.” I believe that he would share the same message with the members of Jamshedpur Province today when we are celebrating our Platinum Jubilee ...
Lent is an invitation to prayer and reflection - a time to discern who we are and what we are called to be. To enter into that prayer we must also look at the people and experiences that formed us.
Jesuit social apostolate encompasses a wide spectrum of activities and engagements ranging from works of charity to taking sides in solidarity with historically marginalised peoples and their struggles to bring structural and systemic change for a more just and humane society.
Two humongous events of Grace: the 150 years of the very first Catholic Baptisms in the whole of Chotanagpur, and 75 graceful years of mission impel the Jamshedpur Province to celebrate God at work in their missions.
