Oct. 5, 2016 - "While we gather as Jesuit alumni and friends, we will find God within and among each other. And together, we will discern how to promote peace and justice in a global and sustainable world."
The World Union of Jesuit Alumni (WUJA), founded in 1956, holds an international Congress every four years to gather Jesuit friends and alumni—from as many as 50 countries representing Jesuit ministries from around the globe—to build international networks and affirm Jesuit centric values for a greater good.
From June 28-July 2, 2017, WUJA will meet for the first time ever in North America, at John Carroll University, in Cleveland, Ohio. The conference-style event will gather renowned, world-class speakers committed to Uniting Our Jesuit Frontiers in the arts, business, medical science, law, spirituality, service and leadership. As graduates and supporters of Jesuit institutions, we are called to care deeply for the world, especially for those on the frontiers or margins. Attendees will build international relationships through learning, sharing and celebrating this special call.
Take part in a great, world encounter and join alumni and friends of Jesuit schools from around the globe for an educational, spiritual and, most of all, fun-filled event celebrating Jesuit education and Ignatian spirituality.
