During the year of Ignatian conversion, we felt the need to help out the poor physically and materially as well as through our prayer. So, a province wise Eucharistic Adoration was organized by the Province and conducted by the Jesuit Novices, Andhra Province. <https://youtu.be/gMLL0-p2gCk> . The first recollection talk for the province for the first month of the Ignatian year was delivered by Fr ISF. Jeyaraj, SJ. It was circulated, along with a soft copy of the recollection video talk, to all the Superior of the communities to conduct the recollection according to their convenient date and timing. <https://youtu.be/qnsGneV-0nU> .
