The Jesuit Curia in Rome


English   Español   Français

Curia Secretariats

Within the Society of Jesus’ govern-mental structure, six apostolic sectors receive special attention through the creation of secretariats.

The Secretariat for the Promotion of Faith

This new Secretariat coordinates the Promotion of Faith, Ignatian Spirituality and the Ecumenical and Inter-religious dialogue.


The Secretariat for Collaboration with Others

The mission of the Society of Jesus in the 21st century is “the service of faith that does justice in collaboration with others”. In this context, the Society envisions collaboration with fellow-humans across cultures, religions and nationalities to be a new way of being Jesuit.

The ease of digital communication, jet travel and the ongoing encounters of cultures, necessarily shrink frontiers and internationalize societies. We re-discover our common roots as human beings while celebrating our diversities. We become more present to one another and claim kinship and fellowship.

The newly created Secretariat for Collaboration affirms the value of Jesuit collaboration with fellow-Jesuits, as well as with all women and men of good-will. We believe the globalized world confronts us with the challenge of collaboration since Jesuits are both “men for others and men with others”.

Be our partner in this exciting enterprise!

The Social Justice and Ecology Secretariat

The office exists to support and encourage Jesuits and partners in their work for justice peace and environmental care worldwide. Digital editions of the review “Promotio Iustitiae” available in English, Spanish, French and Italian.


The Higher Education Secretariat

The Secretariat for Higher Education promotes the Jesuit identity of Jesuit higher education institutions worldwide; assists in coordinating the activities among regional associations developing a network across regions and cultures; encourages networking among Jesuit universities worldwide to address current global issues on a global level; assists in developing or improving Jesuit colleges/universities in countries in need, and maintains global database for higher education.


The Education Secretariat

The secretariat animates the Jesuit School network throughout the world in its mission of offering a holistic education to the new generations. It aims to help Jesuit institutions be part of our living tradition of academic excellence and service to faith and justice and the new commitment to the environment.


The Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations

For the ecumenical and interreligious relations these Advisors have been appointed: they constitute the Secretariat for Ecumenical & Inter-religious Relations for the Society. The Secretariat is a consultative group conversant with the ongoing relations among diverse faith communities. Each advisor remains in his present work and location rather than moving to Rome. All the advisors gather in Rome once a year to meet together with Father General for discussions on developments in ecumenism and inter-religious relations, and the Society's involvement in them.
