News from the Jesuits in Timor-Leste, April-May 2016

In the last two months, two Filipino Jesuits missioned to Timor-Leste completed their assignments.  Both played major roles in our educational institutions.  Fr Robert Rivera SJ worked hard to organize the first days of Instituto São João de Brito (ISJB) before returning to the Philippines last month, and Fr  Weyms Sanchez SJ is scheduled to leave in June, after one and a half years with Colégio de Santo Inácio de Loiola (CSIL).

So, in this April-May issue of our newsletter, we provide an update on the changes in CSIL, ISJB and Escola Secundária Catolica Nossa Senhora de Fátima Railaco (NOSSEF).

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.
