July 29, 2016 — July 31 is the feast day of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus who passed away 460 years ago on that date in 1556. In the video below, Jesuit Father Dorian Llywelyn, executive director of the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education at Santa Clara University, examines the life of St. Ignatius.
January 22 will mark 45 years since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision made abortion legal in the United States, and today the Society of Jesus in the U.S. is asking Jesuits and their collaborators to continue to stand in solidarity with the unborn and with mothers in difficult situations.
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.
