Becoming a Jesuit

The Society of Jesus is a community of priests and brothers dedicated to the service of God and the Church for the betterment of the world around us. Whatever our ministry — from university to parish to the service of the poor and refugees, our work is always for the glory of God and the help and salvation of souls.

As Jesuits and friends in mission, we invite you to become part of our story. In the words of Fr Pedro Arrupe:

“Come if serving Christ is at the very centre of your life.
Come if you have broad and sufficiently strong shoulders.
Come if you have an open spirit, a reasonably open mind
and a heart larger than the world.
Come if you know how to tell a joke and can laugh with others and…
on occasions you can laugh at yourself.”
