Belgian Jesuits Celebrate 150 Year Anniversary In India

Belgian Jesuits are celebrating the 150th anniversary of the establishment of their Bengal mission in eastern India. The order has had a big impact on lives in the region through education, literary contributions and a translation of the Bible into Bengali.
Father Andre Bruylants, 83, former headmaster of the Jesuit-run St. Xavier’s College in Kolkata, has been working in the mission for 60 years.
He is one of seven remaining Belgian Jesuits in the religious society’s Calcutta province.
