In our first newsletter of 2017, we look back on the year that was for our education apostolate. We are filled with gratitude for the developments that have taken place, particularly the opening of Instituto São João de Brito, and continuing improvements in the campus and programs of Colégio de Sto Inácio de Loiola and Escola Secundaria Católica Nossa Senhora de Fátima Railaco.
In this December newsletter, Fr Joaquim Sarmento SJ, Delegate of the Regional Superior, sends his Christmas message, in which he mentions some of the blessings that 2016 has brought the Jesuits in East Timor.
Our new Fr General Arturo Sosa stressed collaboration in his first homily as Superior General of the Society of Jesus, and we are blessed to have many religious and lay collaborators in Timor-Leste. So in this November issue of our newsletter, we introduce Sr Jo, Sr Eliza and Sr Augusta, three of our religious partners in mission.
