Mission


 
To build a fuller expression of justice and love into the structures of human life in common is the purpose of the Social Apostolate of the Society of Jesus, among the many other works that Jesuits do.

Reality, with all its contradictions and difficulties: this is where we live, engaged, in community, with Jesus Christ and within the Church, as a team, with the poor. Our endeavour is to work with people for change to bring the charity and the justice of the Gospel to society and culture. We have been given Good News and abundant reasons to hope that this is possible, and in this passionate enterprise which is religious and cultural and social, local and global, we want to share these hopes with others.

This web-site presents the mission and approach of the social apostolate, the spirituality which inspires and motivates Social ministries, the issues which Jesuits and colleagues work on in different parts of the world, the networks and sources of information available.
