Europe – Province delegates meet in Palermo

The European Social Delegates had their annual meeting at Arrupe Institute in Palermo, from the 24th to 26th April 2014. The discussions were focused on the “dimension” of social justice in all our ministries and what role the social sector can play in our provinces to enhance this dimension. Other topics were the sustainability of the social sector and the forthcoming EU elections. The 15 participants were from Italy, Spain, Malta, Britain, South Poland, South Belgium, Ukraine, France, Ireland and the JRS Europe, besides Fr John Dardis, President of the European Provincials and Fr Patxi Alvarez and Xavier Jeyaraj from this Secretariat. The most enriching part of the meeting was the visit to ZEN, a deprived neighbourhood in Palermo.
