dc.description.abstract"Cooperating With Each Other in Mission," The Very Reverend Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, S.J. Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Omaha, Nebraska, October 7-8, 2004.| - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -|The Importance of this Visit|Fr. Jim Grummer, S.J., Provincial of the Wisconsin Province of the Society of Jesus, decided to use the occasion of the 125th anniversary celebrations of the Jesuits coming to Omaha, and the upcoming 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Wisconsin Province, to invite Fr. Kolvenbach to come to Omaha, to visit our Jesuit sponsored ministries, and to give a major address.|The topic of the major address comes from the theme of the visit, "Celebrating 125 Years of Jesuit Lay Partnership in Omaha." The 34 General Congregation of the Society of Jesus, which met in Rome in early 1995, issued a decree, addressed to the Society itself, entitled "Cooperating with the Laity in Mission." Read that decree if you want to understand the background and context for this historic visit of Fr. Kolvenbach.|Fr. Grummer has asked Fr. Kolvenbach to give a major address on this same topic, but addressing it to us all: Jesuits and Lay Partners: Cooperating with Each Other in Mission." | - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -|In additon to the video recordings of Fr.
