In this September-October issue of our newsletter, we share something of the life of Fr João Felgueiras SJ, a Portuguese Jesuit missionary who arrived in what was then called Portuguese Timor in 1971.

Forty-five years later, Fr Felgueiras remains as dedicated to the people of his adopted country as when he refused to leave Timor during the conflict in the 1970s. Timor-Leste President Taur Matan Ruak awarded Fr Felgueiras a medal of merit on June 10, a day after the priest’s 95th birthday, in recognition of his contribution to the building of the nation.

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).
