Jesuit Residence Blessing


On Friday, September 30, Gonzaga held a blessing over the construction site for the new 36,000 sq. ft Jesuit Residence.

Chair of the Board of Trustees Scott Morris shared that, “This is a time to celebrate and reflect on our mission as a Catholic, Jesuit, humanistic institution. Through the generosity of many present here today, through the belief from our Boards of Trustees and Regents, we are ready to bless this site and begin construction of a new home and spiritual space for our Jesuit community.”

The Residence will serve as a home for Jesuits in residence, include reflective space to serve Jesuits seeking retreat, provide appropriate office and work space, and link the central life of the Jesuit community with Gonzaga students, faculty and staff.

The Residence is scheduled to open Fall 2017.
