WHAT IS PRE-PRANS?
Pre-Prans is basically happy hour. Short for preprandial, it’s anything done right before a meal, like having appetizers and drinks. In the Society of Jesus, “pre-prans” is a traditional way that Jesuits who live together make time in their busy schedules to gather as a community.
