Jesuits As Servants

The Jesuits serve God and the community in various different ways. They educate many young people in many different high schools, colleges, and universities across the nation. They also serve through many types of ministries.

There are 28 Jesuit colleges and universities across the United States, with more than 185,00 students enrolled. These schools include Loyola University and Xavier University. There are also 46 Jesuit high schools in the U.S. These high schools educate more than 35,000 students per year. Two of these Jesuit high schools are Belen Jesuit Prep. and Tampa Jesuit. All these Jesuit schools give the students a great education, and they also teach the students about the Catholic religion and how to live a morally good and holy life.

Jesuits also serve in spreading the word of God throughout many diverse communities. About 500 Jesuit missionaries work with local Jesuits and other people in Latin America, Asia, India, the Near East, and Micronesia. This is following the vision of St. Ignatius of Loyola who wanted to be able to help in the ends of the earth, where there was great need.

In the United States Jesuit priests and brothers serve in more than 100 parishes. Other Jesuits serve in the U.S. in diocesan parishes, as hospital chaplains, and as military chaplains. Many Jesuits serve the community in ways such as lawyers and physicians for the poor, teachers in Non-jesuit colleges and universities, heads of diocesan administrative offices, cardinals, archbishops, bishops, and in many other ways. The Jesuits have done many great things for the community and still do great things today.
