Europe: New Social Apostolate coordinator

The Social Apostolate in Europe now has a new coordinator; the position had been vacant for some time. Fr Brendan MacPartlin SJ has been appointed for three years and officially started on 1 September; nevertheless, he came to the Social Week of the Jesuits in Europe (in Piest?any, Slovakia) at the end of August to introduce himself. During his presentation, he said that his role was still very much ?under construction? but that the Conference of European Provincials (CEP) had given him some helpful guidelines for his work.
