Superior General to convoke General Congregation 36 (GC 36) at the end of 2014

In a letter to the entire Society of Jesus dated May 20, 2014, Father General has announced he will convoke the General Congregation 36 at the end of this year 2014. General Congregation 36 (GC36 as it is called) will hold in 2016. According to the official website of the Society of Jesus in Rome, "the meeting of Provincials originally scheduled for January 2015 in Yogyakarta and convoked on 12th March of  this year is cancelled."

The Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Father Adolfo Nicolas, SJ, will also on this occasion submit his resignation, of course, with the approval of Pope Francis, to the Jesuits in 2016. The reason for his resignation is because of his advanced age (78).
