In a letter dated 29 May 2020, the Provincial of the former Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus announced his decision to close the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth, effective August 2021.  You may read the Provincial’s letter, accompanying FAQs, and Br. Derby’s letter of response here.


While we are sorrowful at the decision, we are focused on the remaining time of ministry here in Wernersville.  The Jesuit Center will continue to offer retreats and other programs for spiritual renewal, and to host groups, through August 2021.  You can see our 2021 program calendar here.


Alisha Forcinio is our Coordinator of Hosted Groups here at the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth, having joined the team in July 2018.  She capably handles details of communication, scheduling, and organization for the many church groups, schools, and non-profits that come to the Jesuit Center.  Alisha enjoys welcoming our returning groups and introducing new groups to the Center.


Alisha is a full-time student at Albright College studying Business Administration.  She has prior experience in retail and customer service, as well as creative writing and journalism.
