At the Collège
Saint Michel in Antananarivo, the General was first asked to bless the
community’s new residence. He also spent time with the Jesuit brothers, a group
of companions with whom he feels close and to whom he always shows a warm
attention during his journeys.
On Thursday 6 October, he left for the south of the
country, where the Jesuits are present in parishes and in their numerous field
stations. His visit included meetings in Mananjary and Fianarantsoa. In each of
these towns one finds a college run by the Society.
was at the Collège Immaculée Conception in Mananjary that all those
who carry out the mission of the Society in the region, the whole Ignatian
family, came together: teachers and students of the school, of course, but also
other collaborators, lay people, sisters, members of the EYM (Eucharistic Youth
Movement), CLC, and MCCP (Christian professionals).
