The II Seminar JESEDU-Jogja2024 is an international event that follows the II Colloquium JESEDU-Global 2021 in the 9-year cycle of international gatherings for the ongoing exercise of discernment for our schools.

The event is scheduled for June 24-28, 2024, and will take place at De Britto College in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

It will be preceded by a virtual pre-seminar that will be held April 1-30, 2024.  

The Seminar will focus on ‘Educating for Faith in the 21st Century’. The aims of the Seminar are to:

  • Clarify the meaning of being Catholic/Jesuit Schools at the service of the Gospel and the Church in the contexts of today.
  • Promote in-depth faith formation in the context of interreligious and multi-convictional dialogue in the service of our mission of justice and reconciliation.
  • Clarify the place of Ignatian Spirituality in the faith formation process for students and educators.
  • Identify the challenges and opportunities of educating for faith within the secular/religious fundamentalistic contexts.

It is important that we reflect together on the theme of the seminar and share our insights and opinions on it.

The JECSE network will be represented by 14 delegates at the seminar in Indonesia.

All members of our network are cordially invited to participate in the virtual pre-seminar in April and to follow the videostreaming from Yogyakarta in June. Through online means of communication, we will all have the opportunity to be involved in the process of discernment in common on this very important issue for our schools.
