A tranquil place to reflect and pray


Apart from the scenic setting on the beach and the warm weather, the Tertianship features a fine sacred art collection from the South African artist Joseph Capelle, whose religious depictions of the Stations of the Cross exist in various Churches and Chapels around South Africa to as far as the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem. The Tertianship is proud and grateful to host a chronological representative sample of his work throughout his life.

We also have selections from other Southern African artists like Anthony Watsham SJ FRES, Ezequiel Mabote and Ndabuko Ntuli, among others.

The School of the Heart

The programme follows the common tertianship programme of the Society of Jesus with a particular emphasis on the African experience of the Society of Jesus. It is essentially the ‘school of the heart’ for the Jesuit at the end of his primary formation as St Ignatius desired; it aims to create a community of priest and brother tertians through a mutual sharing of our Jesuit life stories and prayer. The consideration of our own life story and that of St Ignatius with the experience of the Spiritual Exercises seeks to integrate the life of each tertian for final incorporation into the Society. A study of the Constitutions, General Congregations, history of the Society, Vows and administration of the Society is an integral part of the tertianship.
