Jesuits, including Fr. Myles Sheehan, SJ, former New England province provincial, and Fr. Michael Linden, SJ, continue work in Amman, Jordan, at the Jesuit Center and Sacred Heart Parish. Last year, 400 Jordanian Christians took the Jesuit Center’s Bible and Spirituality in Arabic course, and, in partnership with Jesuit Refugee Services (JRS), the Center also welcomed well over 1,000 individuals seeking to learn more about English and western culture.
Jesuits in Micronesia serve the Church and society through the ministries of spirituality and education, promoting reconciliation with God, humanity and the earth.
