Highlights from last year
The inaugural Fr. Jack O’Brien Golf Classic was held at Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham, ON, on September 28, 2016. More than 60 golfers enjoyed a beautiful sunny day on the North Course at Angus Glen in support of this Friends of the Jesuits event.
Held in memory of Fr. Jack O’Brien, SJ, the event was started to help expand the Friends of the Jesuits program that Fr. O’Brien helped to establish with the goal of bringing together like-minded individuals, hoping to broaden the reach of the Jesuits, and to reflect the international scope of the Society of Jesus.Father O’Brien was a cherished Concordia professor and highly regarded author, speaker and administrator. In 1965, he founded the Communication Arts program, the first university communication studies program in Canada, at Loyola College, one of Concordia University’s founding institutions. He was also an avid golfer, a fine administrator, a zealous pastor and spiritual director, and above all, a Jesuit.
