Oregon and California Province Websites Have Been Combined

Thank you for your interest in the Society of Jesus, Oregon Province. We have recently blended our website with that of the California Province at www.jesuitswest.org in advance of our coming together to form a new larger province, Jesuits West, which will officially launch in July, 2017. The blended website has the same graphic look and content structure of the former Oregon Province website.

The coming together of the California and Oregon provinces represents a return to the roots of the two provinces which separated from a single province in 1932. As a new, larger province, Jesuits West will have a geographic territory that includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. The new province will maintain the same hallmarks for which the Jesuits have come to be recognized, including work in education, Ignatian Spirituality, parishes, retreat centers, and social ministries to the poor and disadvantaged.

In recent years, Jesuits from the Oregon and California provinces have been missioned to leadership roles in the other province. And, for many years, the provinces have operated a joint Novitiate and Formation program for the education and training of future Jesuit priests and brothers.

The blended website includes full lists of Jesuits West ministries, news, events, Jesuit obituaries, as well as news from other Jesuit works around the world and updates on initiatives of Pope Francis, the first Jesuit pope.

If you have questions, please contact us.
