On Monday, September 29, 2014, nearly 100 golfers and supporters attended the 5th Annual Friends of the Jesuits Golf Outing at the beautiful Meadow Brook Club in Jericho, N.Y.
After registering for the day, guests had the opportunity to talk with Jesuits and members of the province staff. Fr. Charles Frederico, SJ, the vocation director for the Maryland, New England and New York Provinces led the golfers in prayer before they teed off.
When the golfers completed the course, they gathered for a reception where they had the chance to catch up with their fellow golfers as well as the Jesuits who came to represent the province. Fr. John Cecero, SJ, the provincial of the New York Province, spoke about the good work that the province does and thanked the donors for their generosity.
“Jesuits will continue to respond to the needs of the Church, and we can flourish because of friends like you,” said Fr. Cecero. “Thank you and God bless you for your generosity and goodness… and be assured that the Jesuits…and especially our Jesuits at Murray-Weigel Hall, pray for you every day.”
The guests were then treated to a lively auction and placed bids for the chance to play on some of the best golf courses in the country. Group awards were given out for foursomes with the best score as well as individual awards for golfers.
The outing was a resounding success. We are grateful to our friends who supported the outing through their participation, sponsorships and donations.
