As president of the Jesuit Conference, which is headquartered in Washington, Fr. Timothy Kesicki, S.J. will be responsible for coordinating the activities of about 2,800 members of the Society of Jesus. Kesicki said his latest assignment “comes at a very exciting time for the church and the Society of Jesus here in the U.S. and around the world.” “Clearly, the election of Pope Francis, the first Jesuit pope in history, has highlighted the Jesuit vocation,” Kesicki said.
“My hope is that since the pope is one of us, he will give us a challenging mission and that I will be able to play a role in helping to carry it out with renewed zeal and commitment to serving in Christ's name here and around the world.”
Kesicki is scheduled to lead a spiritual retreat for priests in June at St. Paul Seminary in Crafton. Since being ordained in 1994, Kesicki has served with the Jesuit Refugee Service in Adjumani, Uganda, and worked in U.S. cities including Detroit, Cleveland, New York and Chicago, where he serves as the provincial of the Chicago-Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus.
