SJES Jubilee – 50 years of Blessings, Gratefully, Envision the Future

From 5 – 7 February 2019, around 44 village activists, coordinators and the staff of Udayani Social Action Forum-Kolkata gathered at Dhyan Ashram Retreat House to celebrate 50 years of the Justice and Reconciliation mission of the Jesuits in Social Justice and Ecology. The activists, belonging to various faiths, were helped to gratefully acknowledge the blessings received through Jesuits; to understand who Jesuits are and why we do what we do; what is the Jesuit social justice mission, its history in the SJ and particularly in Kolkata; and critically look at the present context of India and envision the future for Social Movements. They also listened to the video message of Fr. Arturo Sosa on the 50 years Jubilee.
