Society of Jesus

The Society of Jesus (Jesuits), founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola, are “companions of Jesus” called to serve a world in need, sharing Christ’s mission of justice and reconciliation.  The Jesuits are a religious community of priests and brothers sent to all corners of the world to share the Good News of our faith, to promote justice, and to foster greater dialogue between different religions and cultures.  Seek the greater glory of God and the development of a more humane and sustainable world.  Become the change for the world.
