Seventy years a Jesuit

September 23, 2008 in General, News

Kevin Laheen SJFr Kevin Laheen SJ celebrated seventy years as a Jesuit on Sept 16, with his family, friends and Jesuit community in Leeson St, Dublin 2.  Born on Feb 18, 1919 he has lived and continues to live a full and generous life. Many of his years as a Jesuit were spent giving missions all over Ireland as well as overseas.  He has written many books, and has kept alive the memory of Jesuit history in Tullabeg with  his latest, The Jesuits in Tullabeg 1810-1860.  Not a man to rest on his laurels, Fr Laheen is putting  the finishing touches to the sequel of Tullabeg, which will be published later this year.
