At the end of August, the annual meeting of the Portuguese Province of the Society of Jesus took place in the Casa da Torre in Braga.  As in previous editions, this year a theme was chosen which served as inspiration for the meeting: "Ignatian Sources".

It was a time of fraternal encounter, but also of reflection on the Province. The programme included different conferences, moments of reflection, community and personal prayer, times of sharing, but also occasions for conversations, informal meetings and some entertainment.

Mario Garcia, sj and Fr. Vítor Lamosa, sj, presented the meeting in a conversation guided by the theme "Returning to the Sources". After that, the Portuguese Jesuits were also invited to a moment of prayer.

"Ite ad Fontes" was the theme of the second day's intervention, prepared by the Spanish Jesuit Fr. Carlos Coupeau, sj. The two interventions of the Spanish Jesuit were followed by a short time of personal prayer.

In the afternoon, the plenary session "Reflecting to take advantage" took place, followed by a reflection on the new Universal Apostolic Preferences. After the celebration of Mass and dinner, there was time for a playful and social evening.

On the last day, in the morning, there were a series of spirituality workshops entitled "Learning to go to the Source": the Spiritual Exercises, the Constitutions, the Letters and the Autobiography of St. Ignatius. At the end of the morning there was a time of adoration reserved for "Connecting to the Source".

The meeting ended with the celebration of the Eucharist.
