Jesuit Parishes and Retreat Centers
There are 66 Jesuit parishes and 22 retreat centers in the United States. Jesuit parishes are situated in inner cities, suburbs, rural outposts and on college campuses and Native American reservations. Jesuit retreat centers can be found in places ranging from New England's rocky coast to the foothills of the Rockies and the rustic trails of Santa Clara Valley. They are part of urban landscapes, too.
