The Blessing and Inauguration of Instituto de Brito


Instituto de Brito as a Jesuit institution for higher education in Timor Leste, was established in 2015 with the aim of producing new generations of teachers who have professional competence and deep ethical grounding. The vision is to provide the education sector in the country a big boost by providing the much needed leadership in education. Before moving into the newly built campus, the institute had to sort of ‘hover’ from one place to another. The school started by using the space in Casa Gonzaga for more than a year. Then it had to settle for a while in Colegio de Loiola for another year before finally getting its permanent nest in Kasait just beside Colegio de Loiola.

The new campus definitely calls for a ceremonial inauguration. The event was held on two separate days, 30th of April and the 3rd of May 2018. The inauguration was held earlier as the Minister of Education himself could not make it on the 3rd of May. The blessing was formally held on the 3rd of May.
