What We Do

Pastoral Ministries

Jesuit parishes fulfill the fundamental mission of the Society of Jesus by living and preaching a faith that does justice, by entering into dialogue with other religious traditions, and by both challenging and integrating aspects of the contemporary culture.

A Jesuit parish provides a base for the ministries that characterized the early Jesuits: the giving of the Spiritual Exercises in all of their various adaptations, the preaching of God's word both in and outside a liturgical setting, and the practice of personal and communal discernment. A Jesuit parish is a center for developing and fostering spirituality as well as a center for the liturgical worship of a faith community.
