The shaping up of the Apostolic Preferences “in the field”

Jan 14 , 2020 Stories

It’s been only 11 months since the “Universal Apostolic Preferences” were officially approved by Pope Francis as a 10-year mission for the Society of Jesus. The UAPs were the culmination of months of discernment by Jesuit communities and works around the world as they answered a simple question: “Where do we hear Christ’s call?”

Since the release of the UAPs, there has been a flurry of activity around the Society of Jesus as Jesuits and their colleagues have tried to faithfully discern not just how the document will change the way they work, but also how they are called to be witness.

During this time, we have collected pictures, videos and testimonies from the worldwide Society. We’ve seen Fr. General and his Assistants travel the world, engaging with communities and apostolates to turn the UAPs from a collection of words into a living document.

We will be releasing these stories in the coming weeks, but until then you can whet your appetite with this teaser.
