Our Founder | Our Order | Our Inspiration

The Society of Jesus, the Jesuits, founded in 1540 by St. Ignatius of Loyola and his companions.

Ignatius had gathered around him an energetic band of well-educated men who desired nothing more than to help others find God in their lives.

It was Ignatius’ original plan that the Jesuits be travelling missionaries who would preach and administer the sacraments wherever there was the hope of accomplishing the greater good.

Since its foundation the Order has grown from the original ten to more than 16,000 Jesuits worldwide today. READ MORE
