Jesuit Novitiate
Novitiate of the Euro-Mediterranean Province of the Society of Jesus

The archbishop’s visit

11 Nov 2020

On November 10th the new archbishop of Genoa, Mons. Marco Tasca, came to visit the novitiate. He stayed for dinner with the whole community. Afterwards he spent some time with us, where we introduced ourselves, and he answered various questions.
It was really uplifting for us to meet this zealous and joyful pastor. His more than 40 years as a Conventual Franciscan has left in him a knowledge of religious life that enriched us greatly. We were very grateful for this meeting.

As a final joke, the archbishop said that we should not think that he came only to chat with us, but that he expects, as a reward for this meeting, that we pray for him. Of this he can be more than certain.


First profession of vows

15 Sep 2022

On Saturday 17 September 2022, at 5.30 p.m., in our novitiate house, Christian Lefta took his first vows in the Society of Jesus, for the Euro-Mediterranean Province.

For us first-years, it was an emotional moment both because of what vows in the Society represent and because of the affection we have for our brother Christian, who welcomed us last year with his smile, his love and his kindness. We wish Christian all the best and may his life always be a happy one.

We accompany him with our prayers.
