What is a Jesuit?

Jesuits belong to the Society of Jesus, a Roman Catholic order of priests and brothers founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. Today Jesuits around the world work for social and ecological justice through spiritual and intellectual engagement with contemporary cultures of diverse religions and ethnicities.
