Spain: Ignatian Advocacy Workshop successfully concluded

The Ignatian Advocacy Workshop, held in El Escorial from 10-16 November, was described as a success by Fr Fernando Franco SJ, director of the Social Justice Secretariat. He said: “The fruits of the Workshop have gone beyond our expectations. Besides learning from current experiences, making valuable contacts and clarifying our motivation as Jesuits to engage in advocacy, the group has also become aware that we are living a uniquely blessed and challenging moment in history, a ‘kairos’ moment, and has committed itself to act on it.”
