Jesuits of four provinces in North West Europe – Ireland, Flanders the Netherlands, and Britain – took time off from their current ministries this summer to participate in alternative works – known in Jesuit jargon as ‘experiments’. They used this experience as the basis for reflection on apostolic priorities for the Society of Jesus over the coming decades. It all began with some days of orientation in the conference centre of Sint-Jan Berchmans University College, Heverlee, Belgium.
