Stephen Surovick, SJ "Growing In Grace And Understanding Of God's Call"

Through these six years of formation, I have learned that religious life in the Society of Jesus consists of a personal relationship with God, which in turn supports the public reality of a Jesuit’s mission. The Society’s mission, as it is lived by each individual Jesuit, regardless of the mission, is one of availability. Finally, the opportunity to be ordained a Jesuit priest means having the opportunity to connect people’s daily lives with the Catholic Church. And while I have much more to learn, I have humbly requested to continue theological studies in the coming academic year in preparation for eventual ordination to the priesthood, as my relationship with God continues to draw me into greater service of His people.
