Jesuit Superior General, Fr Adolfo Nicolás sj flew in from Rome on Thursday to spend a week in Malta. This is Fr Nicolás’s first ever visit to the island, where he will be accompanying Jesuit Provincials from all over Europe during their annual Conference over the coming days.
Once the Jesuit Conference for European Provincials is over, Fr Nicolás is expected to spend a further two days visiting various Jesuit communities and works, as well as one of Malta’s Detention Centres.
Fr Adolfo Nicolás SJ will be available for a question and answer session with students and staff in the University Chapel following a Mass on Wednesday 21 October at 12.30pm. He will pay a special visit to the students of St Aloysius College on Thursday at 11.30am. This will be the first time that the whole school, including the Primary section taken on in 2008, will be gathered together.
All Jesuits and their lay collaborators are invited to attend a meeting with Fr Nicolás on Thursday evening.
Fr Nicolás was elected head of the Society of Jesus, the largest male religious order worldwide, in January of last year, a role he will occupy for life.
