“What is God calling us to today?” This was the central question delegates to the annual assembly of the Social Centres Network of the Jesuit Conference of Latin America and the Caribbean (CPAL) were urged to reflect upon.

Participants met from June 3 to 6 in Puente Grande, near Guadalajara, Mexico. Issues arising at the assembly included recent trends in migration and deeper understanding of Indigenous cultures. Reflection on these issues was strengthened by the presence of delegates from the Jesuit Network with Migrants (RJM) and the Reflection Team on Indigenous Cultures and Religions of Latin America (ERCRILA).

CJI Director Jenny Cafiso participated in the meetings and expressed the support and solidarity of Canadian Jesuits for the social mission of CPAL.
