The Society of Jesus was founded in 1540 by the soldier turned mystic, Ignatius Loyola, and his nine well-educated companions. Today, there are around 18,000 priests and brothers present in over 100 countries serving God's creation. Through our varied ministries, we care for the whole person: body, mind and soul.

We draw on the rich tradition of Ignatian spirituality to help ourselves and others to discern God's presence and work in our lives. In all situations, we try to discern the path which will serve God and those in need in the best possible way.
