Mission: Jesuits work in a variety of ministries including higher and secondary education, parish and retreat work, and social services for the poor and marginalized. Jesuits are uniquely able and willing, making themselves available to take on some of the world''s most pressing issues. Putting faith and values in action, combining knowledge and ethics, advocating for the poor, weak and marginalized, and fighting against social injustices; these are the ways that Jesuits respond to the needs of today''s world to make it better.
Programs: Ignatian values have led Jesuits along many paths. Jesuits can be found in education, in the professions and sciences, in social justice organizations, and leading good works of all types. Jesuits are the guardians of these values, devoting themselves to their fulfillment in the earthly world, taking themselves unstintingly to places others hesitate to step. No matter the path, the goal is the same, committing one's life to the betterment of the world. Companions are needed. Journey with us and help the Jesuits of The California Province.
