Become a Jesuit

Jesuit Vocation

Jesuits today serve in 112 nations on six continents and number about 16,000 priests, brothers and seminarians worldwide. Jesuits discharge a wide variety of roles including that of retreat directors, teachers, doctors, poets, lawyers, social workers, writers, administrators, professors, pastors, scientists and artists. Jesuits are also engaged in missionary work, uplift of the poor, social justice activities, inter-religious dialogue and other ministries.

Christ invites each of us along a path in life of service to God and neighbor. But discovering that path – and boldly following where it leads – is not always easy. Fortunately, Jesuits have nearly 500 years of taking up Christ’s challenge to serve a world in need for the glory of God and the help of souls. The legacy of St. Ignatius of Loyola guides us in this mission.

Stay at home
If idea of becoming a Jesuit makes you unsettled or nervous.
Do not come to us if you love the Church like a stepmother rather than a mother.
Do not come if you think that in so doing you will be doing the Society of Jesus a favour.
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.

Walk with Jesus

Be the Difference

Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute final way.

What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekend, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.

Fall in love,

stay in love,

and it will decide everything.

Rev. Fr. Pedro Arrupe, SJ

Father General on Vocation
