who-we-are-the-jesuitsIn one way or another, we have all felt moved by Christ’s call:

Come! Follow me!

Inspired by the example of Ignatius,

we want to be companions of Jesus, sharing his work of love in our world.

Jesuits ordinarily live together in communities, some small and others large, depending on the kinds of ministries in which they are engaged.

Sometimes a Jesuit will live alone because his work or study places him at a distance from a local community, but he remains attached to a larger community.

Jesuits share all things in common, owning nothing in their own name.

Jesuits derive strength for their ministries from their relationship with Jesus in prayer, as well as from the mutual support, understanding and encouragement they receive from their brother Jesuits.
