Mass and Breakouts Conclude Arrupe Week 2018

Arrupe Week 2018 concluded on Friday, March 16, with a day devoted to a closer examination of the global refugee crisis and how people of faith can respond to it morally and compassionately. The day began with Mass, with guest celebrant Fr. Leo O'Donovan, S.J. (Director of Mission for Jesuit Refugee Service/USA). Students then participated in their choice of nearly 30 breakout sessions, led both by guest speakers and members of the Prep community, offering fresh perspectives and more detailed examinations of the issues at hand.
