Who are the Jesuits?


The Jesuits are a worldwide Catholic order of priests and brothers, founded by Ignatius of Loyola and nine companions in 1540.

At present, there are about 19,800 Jesuits in the world, covering six continents and over one-hundred countries.

Due to a broad original vision, the Jesuits have developed a wide network of ministries and are involved in social, spiritual, educational, pastoral, media and communication ministries.
