Companions in Action
Companions in Action is being launched on December 3rd, the feast day of St Francis Xavier. This is an exciting new programme that will involve all the Jesuit schools in the UK taking action with Jesuit schools in the global South. St. Ignatius called his first followers Companions and St Francis Xavier devoted most of his life to mission work in India and South East Asia.
The thirty-two schools involved are united by the Jesuit ethos:
Men and women for and with others
This motto calls for an attitude and readiness to cooperate, to listen and to learn from others and to share a common spiritual inheritance.
Companions in Action aims to:
- Develop a mutually beneficial and sustainable relationship between schools in the United Kingdom and their partner school, or mission, in the developing world.
- Promote Jesuit Education and enable pupils to take action for social justice at home and overseas.
