We’re the Jesuits,
serving where the Church
and the world are most in need.
We’re the Jesuits, serving where the Church and the world are most in need.
We’re a Catholic male religious order of 15,000 priests and brothers, founded in 1540 by Saint Ignatius Loyola. Let’s talk about our mission…
We help people find their way to God and to hear God’s call
We offer spiritual exercises, retreats, and spiritual direction.
We serve as university chaplains, parish ministers, spiritual directors, missionaries, prison chaplains…
We help other religious and clergy to deepen their faith
We proclaim the Gospel. We believe it’s a call to action.
For us, the Gospel is not just a promise but a call to strive for reconciliation and justice in our world today.
This is why we are ‘contemplatives in action’ becoming educators, leaders of social centres, parish priests, political activists and directors of charitable organizations.
We’re with the poor and the rejected. We care for our Common Home.
Injustice, poverty, and environmental crisis are fueling one another, bringing suffering and despair. Jesuits are called to foster hope and reconciliation, not only by offering new solutions but always living next to, accompanying, and working together with those affected the most.
We’re companions on mission. The world is our home.
Our vocation is to be available to the Church, wherever we are needed. We generally live in communities, but with so many great needs in the world, we accept frequent changes, living in different countries, embracing new cultures, and meeting new companions. For this, we are given a great deal of independence and many tools, such as additional specialised studies.
