We seek to offer an extension and a deepening of what Old Boys have already received at Jesuit schools, a deeper experience of God and an understanding of themselves as spiritual beings. We aim to develop faith through service, to build community where there is none, and to strive for intellectual, emotional and spiritual depth. We offer opportunities for the development of interiority, a rich interior life. In the service of others we form sustaining and constructive relationships. We do not do charity in the traditional sense; we offer friendship.
