News from the Jesuits in Timor-Leste, March 2016

 

Our teacher education institute, Instituto São João de Brito (ISJB), has opened with a small first intake of 23 students – 12 Jesuit candidates, two Dominican sisters, two SPC sisters, three ACI sisters and four lay people.

ISJB will be located in Kasait, next to our secondary school, Colégio de Santo Inácio de Loiola but for now, since its buildings have still to be built, it will operate in Casa Gonzaga, our candidate house in Dili.

A Letter from Timor-Leste, December 2015

Chapel of Colégio Mateus Ricci, MacauDear friends in the Lord,

On behalf of all the Jesuits in East Timor, I’d like to extend our best wishes of every goodness to all our friends, benefactors and partners.

Another Christmas is approaching, another year coming to its end. It’s an opportunity to stop and review with gratitude our journey, something that you in different ways have been part of. There is no better Christmas gift we can offer you than to reaffirm how you have been a real gift of the good God to us and to all we are serving here in East Timor.  You will find some brief updates on our various projects in the attached December newsletter.

In the spirit of this Jubilee Year of Mercy that the Holy Father launched on December 8, we wish you all a Merry and Blessed Christmas.

En todo amar y servir,

Fr Joaquim Sarmento SJ
Delegate for the Major Superior
Jesuit Region of East Timor
