About this title


Many of us have explored the Jesuit cemeteries of Grand Coteau and Spring Hill and have wondered: Who were these men? What were they like? What work did they do? The answers to these and many other questions can be found in Southern Jesuit Biographies. It s an extensive work, containing brief life stories of more than 200 Jesuit priests and brothers. And it is well-illustrated with photographs, many of them rare and seldom seen. For three centuries, Southern Jesuits have been busy helping to build the Kingdom of God on earth preaching the Gospel in word and deed, administering the sacraments, learning and teaching, building churches and schools, leading retreats, promoting peace and justice. Their work has taken them from New Orleans to Dallas, from Miami to El Paso, from Brazil to Sri Lanka. And now, effective July 31, 2014, the New Orleans Province has joined with the Missouri Province to form the new U.S. Central and Southern Province and to begin a new era of service to God s people. But lest the lives and contributions of these noble men of the South be allowed to fade into obscurity, this book captures their intriguing stories. This commemorative edition was compiled and written by the renowned scholar and prolific author Rev. Jerry Neyrey, S.J., with contributions from Tom Clancy, S.J., and others.
