Intellectual Life

Fr. Adolfo Nicholas, Superior General of the Jesuits has spoken against the "globalisation of superficiality" that is, the technology-driven trend towards not asking the big questions. In response, The Cardoner Project seeks to deepen and broaden minds, just as it fosters deeper relationships of service and community. More than just the study of books, this distinctive way of thinking challenges the status quo and underpins responsible leaders of the future committed to depth.

The Cardoner Project runs events to stimulate deeper conversation around ideas, be it as seminars, casual reading groups, or 'Long Table Nights' with guest speakers. All are welcome to engage, regardless of faith or lack thereof.

Leadership and Mentoring

This is an area of high priority for The Cardoner Project. Helping to form leaders for a more just and Christ-centred society is what we are about. Jesuit educated Old Boys are rightly proud, particularly of the political and judicial successes of older Old Boys, and wish to ensure that they continue this tradition of service with the highest ideals of faith-centred ethics and compassion for the poor.

We want a generation of prayerful, discerning, just and deeply loving leaders for the Church and the world.
