As a young Jesuit from Arizona Anthony Corcoran went as missionary to Siberia after the fall of the communism. He served in the parishes in and around Novosibirsk and in the formation of young priests. 16 months ago there was a terrible shock among the Jesuits in Russia when regional superior Otto Mesmer and Victor Betancourt were murdered in Moscow. Corcoran was appointed as regional superior for the Jesuits in Russia, Siberia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. His attention goes to the support of the deeply affected Jesuits and collaborators in the region, but also to the development of the Saint Thomas Philosophical Institute in Moscow and a new Spiritual Centre in Novosibirsk.
