Postponement

This website is closed until if and when I begin my Jesuit philosophy studies in August 2007.

Beginning Sunday, our New Orleans Province novice class will spend two years at the Jesuit novitiate in Grand Coteau, Louisiana. For those who wish to contact any or all of us, here is the novitiate address and phone number:

St. Charles College
P.O. Drawer C
Grand Coteau, LA 70541

Tel: 337-662-5251.

My e-mail address is sean@jesuits.net

By the way, Grand Coteau is home to the only Vatican-documented miracle on U.S. soil.

In 1866, ailing Sacred Heart novice Mary Wilson rose from her deathbed and attributed a miraculous cure to the prayers of Bl. John Berchmans, a Jesuit seminarian who died 250 years earlier. That miracle led to the canonization of Berchmans, now the patron saint of seminarians.

Beautiful old St. Charles College is right next to the St. John Berchmans shrine at Sacred Heart Academy, where Jesuit priests have served as chaplains to the nuns and their students for a long time.

Men considering the priesthood or religious life can see the shrine for themselves by visiting St. Charles College for a discernment retreat. The novices host two retreats every year.

For more information on discernment retreats or Jesuit life in general, contact our vocation director:

aw, I love Fr. Kitten (and i doubt he remembers me)!

So when you see him you can tell him he has people he does not remember (I'd assume he doesn't) praying for him!

Maggie,

Do you call it bias when a realtor shows the best homes first?

Or when a host uncorks the best wine for his guests?

I like to think of it as good hospitality!
