Mr. Raj Vijayakumar, S.J.

The Very Rev. Peter Bisson, S.J. (Provincial, Jesuits of English Canada) and Mr. Tom McGrath are pleased to announce Mr. Raj Vijayakumar, S.J., will begin Regency at St. Bonaventure’s College effective September 1, 2017.  Regency is a period lasting two years during the formation of a candidate to the Society of Jesus following his initial admission to the Society during the two years of novitiate. During this time, they are expected to be fully involved in apostolic work and community life of the Society.  Often regents or “scholastics” are placed in Jesuit schools to teach and assist in other capacities.

Mr. Vijaykumar is a graduate of York University where he graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.  He is currently completing a Master’s degree in Theological Studies from Regis College, University of Toronto.  He holds an international diploma in the French Language. He has had teaching experience at St. Anne’s Middle School, Kingston, Jamaica and Mother Teresa Middle School, Regina, SK.  His duties at St. Bon’s will include some teaching and work in our campus ministry program.

“We are delighted that Mr. Vijaykumar will join us next year and thank Father Bisson for the confidence he has shown in our work, by placing Raj with us,” said Mr. McGrath.
