The California Province of the Society of Jesus has launched
a new website to deliver an enhanced user experience while bringing visitors
closer to the outreach and ministries of the province and Jesuits throughout
The new site follows the model established by the Jesuit
Conference of Canada and the United States and adopted by all U.S. provinces.
“Our new site is much more streamlined than our former
site,” said Jim Muyo, California Province director of communication. “This new
model offers visitors a more direct path to our more than 40 ministries,
including educational institutions, parishes, retreat and spirituality centers,
and social ministries, and provides a more in depth look at the Jesuit charsim
that distinguishes the many ministries of the Society of Jesus.”
The new site contains nearly all of the same information of
the former site but with far fewer links and pages to click through. The site
will take advantage of best practices and emerging trends in delivering
web-based content to provide a richer media experience for visitors. In
addition, in collaboration with the Jesuit Conference and the other U.S.
provinces, the site will offer a wider range of content and will be much more current
than the former site.
Father John P. McBride, SJ, veteran of the 75th Infantry Division during WW II who saw action in the Battle of the Bulge and helped in the liberation of France before becoming a teacher, pastor, and chaplain throughout the Northwest, entered into God’s peace October 20.
We strive to promote justice, enhance faith, and find God in all things.
We welcome partners in mission who wish to volunteer at our ministries or learn more about Ignatian spirituality.
Your support makes it possible for us to continue our ministries of education and service to all of God’s people, especially the poor.
