Jesuit Superior General Adolfo Nicolás Jesus visited the Asia Pacific Conference in January while he was in Timor Leste to attend the Major Superiors Assembly. 

On his way to Timor Leste, he visited the Jesuit Province of Korea, a young and growing Province of the Society, whos 174 members have an average age of only 43.06.

During his four-day visit from January 14 to 17, Father Nicolás met with the members of the province, and had a separate session with those who head formation. 

He also addressed the administrators, faculty and staff of Sogang University, the Jesuit university in Seoul. In addition, Father Nicolás met a number of Korean bishops, including the newly nominated Cardinal Archbishop of Seoul, Andrew Yeom.

From Korea, Father Nicolás traveled to Dili, Timor Leste, for the Major Superiors Assembly of the Jesuit Conference of Asia Pacific and a visit to Jesuits of the Independent Region of East Timor. 

Before he became Superior General, Father Nicolás was the President of the Conference and the Regional Superior of the Independent Region of East Timor.

The Jesuit Region of East Timor has 52 Jesuits, with an average age of 27.06.  Most of these are still in formation outside Timor. On the last day of his visit, January 25, Father Nicolás was the guest of honor at the inauguration of the Jesuit Education Project.
