For more than 450 years Jesuit priests and brothers have served the Church, often on the frontiers of our society, in order to help people experience Christ in their daily lives. Today, more than 16,000 Jesuits worldwide, in collaboration with donors and lay partners, continue to advance the mission of reconciliation, and promote a faith that does justice. Together we place ourselves in the presence of the God who created all people and ask ourselves the questions that St. Ignatius suggested to his first companions: What have I done for Christ? What am I doing for Christ? And what will I do for Christ?
In Canada, Jesuits and their partners eagerly advance the universal mission of the Society of Jesus. This mission is only made possible through the kindness and generosity of our friends and benefactors who support us in our work through their prayers and gifts. In turn, the Jesuits are ever mindful of our friends and benefactors in their Masses and prayers.
No matter how you are connected to the Society of Jesus, you can become part of the Jesuit mission; you can join men and women of faith and generosity who want to make a difference in the world by putting their beliefs into action. Some do this as volunteers; many participate as donors, giving Jesuits the freedom, flexibility, resources, and training to respond to the greatest needs of the Church. Through these gifts, large and small, our donors make possible the daily work of the Society of Jesus and its ministries throughout the world.
We recognize fully that benefactors and friends are truly partners in advancing the mission of the Jesuits and of the Church and we invite you to work together to accomplish God’s work on earth.
Thank you and may God bless you abundantly.
