Jesuit Heritage

The Jesuits – A History Five Centuries in the Making

Ever since St. Ignatius of Loyola established the Society of Jesus in 1534, the Jesuits have focused much of their efforts on education and service to others. As envisioned by its founder, Jesuits and their lay collaborators seek to “find God in all things,” dedicated to the tenet of cura personalis – the care and development of the whole person, mind, body and soul.
