“We should not do by ourselves what we can do with others.”
(Peter Bisson, SJ in “State of the Province”, p.26, 31 July 2015)
Jesuit Partners are central to the work of all Jesuit apostolates. We have a shared mission:
Working together for the greater glory of God at the service of God’s people.
By embracing the heart of Jesuit mission and ministry, we assist in building extended Ignatian communities.
Jesuit Partners receive formation in Ignatian spirituality and Jesuit mission; assistance in the discernment of apostolic objectives and priorities; and formation for partnership at the service of Jesuit mission.
This partnership rests on the commitment of the Society of Jesus as affirmed at their 34th General Congregation:
“We foresee the expansion of lay apostolic leadership in Jesuit works in years to come and pledge ourselves to work in this development”
