USA - Meeting of Conference Social Apostolate

(Apr-2014)

Provincial assistants for the social apostolate met in Tijuana, Mexico from March 24-27. The participants were from the U.S., Mexico, and both Canadian provinces. The biannual meeting offers a chance to share updates, assess advocacy efforts and develop new collaborative strategies. Mining displacement, immigration, and violence as a cause of Central American migration were among the issues discussed. The group also took advantage of the meeting location to educate themselves on border realities between U.S. and Mexico. Xavier Jeyaraj, SJ from SJES was present and offered his perspective on social justice issues from his work as assistant to the Secretary. One notable outcome is the desire to host an international social ministries gathering in 2016 with participants from Antilles, Central America, Mexico, U.S., and Canada. The goal of the meeting would be to examine apostolic priorities with an eye toward increased collaboration.
