Cultivating a spirituality of open eyes at the Loyola TAP

The Loyola Spirituality Center was, for another year, the setting of the meeting of the Territorial Apostolic Platform (TAP) of Loyola, passing on the spirit of the apostolic meetings that the Loyola Province used to celebrate. This year’s meeting, celebrated April 22 and 23, was entitled “Hospitality and the Transmission of Faith: Cultivating a Spirituality of Open Eyes” and 120 people from all the works of the Society in the Basque Country and Navarre participated.
