Curious about Jesuit life?

Imagine what we can do together.

Why We Serve

Christ invites each of us along a path in life of service to God and neighbor. But discovering that path – and boldly following where it leads – is not always easy. Fortunately, Jesuits have nearly 500 years of taking up Christ’s challenge to serve a world in need for the glory of God and the help of souls. The legacy of St. Ignatius of Loyola guides us in this mission.
