Hurricane Matthew Outreach

Dear Superiors and Directors of Works,

We have received several inquiries regarding Hurricane Matthew which hit Haiti, Jamaica and the Southeast Coastal Regions of the United States. The Jesuit Conference website has information on the hurricane’s impact on Haiti. At this point we have not heard any Jesuit related reports from Jamaica nor the affected USA communities.

If any ministries or communities wish to contribute to the Jesuit affiliated Haiti response coordinated through the French Canada Province, contributions may be sent in care of the Midwest Jesuits, 1010 North Hooker Street, Chicago, IL 60614. Please make checks payable to “Jesuit International Missions” with a memo line or cover note indicating Haiti Relief. In this way, Midwest Jesuits will receive, acknowledge (for tax purposes) and transfer the gifts through the French Canada Province.

Donors who prefer to send contributions to support USA relief efforts may do so through Catholic Charities.

Thanks for your solidarity and for all you do,

Mark A. Carr, S.J.
Socius, Wisconsin Province
Walter C. Deye, S.J.
Socius, Chicago-Detroit Province

The Bellarmine Experience

My life is very full, very complicated and, at times, very stressful. Taking the time to go on retreat is a gift to myself, to my family and to the people with whom I work. Retreats help improve my relationship with God and with others, and through these enhanced relationships I can be of better service each and every day.

Bellarmine! The word brings a smile to my face. I can see the beautiful landscape, and I feel an inner peace. For three carefree days of silent reflection with Our Lord, while in the midst of my sister retreatants, I know I will be pampered and well fed, but most of all, so loved. That's Bellarmine for me.
Melinda Henson
I look forward to my annual retreat at Bellarmine as much as any weekend of the year. The retreat master, staff, and beautiful grounds all work together to create an ideal atmosphere for truly thoughtful reflection and self-examination in the context of my Christian beliefs. It is a respite from the daily demands of work and family life that allows me to refocus my attention and energy towards the things that are most important to me.
