High on its priority list is creating ways to generate awareness of the good works of Irish Jesuits abroad over the decades. It is also seeking to ensure continuity in mission activities now that so few new missionaries are available to take the baton. Last week, the new website of Jesuit Missions, built by the Jesuit Communication Centre, went live, and it is expected to play an important role in promoting the idea of mission in the Irish Church at large and among Jesuits in Ireland.
