Support Our Work

The Jesuits of the USA Northeast Province simply could not do what we do without the support of our friends and benefactors. You are an integral part of the Jesuit mission, and you help ensure that the Jesuits can have a life-changing impact on the people we serve.

Formation of Jesuits
The focus of Jesuit formation is to prepare priests and brothers who are well-educated, trained in the Spiritual Exercises and have the skills to minister in a diverse and ever changing environment. Today it requires almost $50,000 a year to support each Jesuit in formation – a process that can take upwards of ten years.
Care of Senior and Infirm Jesuits
When Jesuits reach the end of active ministry and require medical assistance, they most often reside in specialized Jesuit communities that provide both a home, and skilled nursing care. This care is administered by medical professionals and made possible by the generosity of many friends, former students, parishioners, retreatants and benefactors.
Pastoral, Social and Educational Ministries
Jesuits minister in colleges and universities, high schools and middle schools, retreat centers and parishes and apostolic works. From hospital and prison chaplaincy to programs for those affected by homelessness and gang violence, Jesuits continue to follow the legacy of St. Ignatius Loyola by going where needs are greatest.
International Ministries
Jesuits serve in nearly every country, fulfilling a universal vocation to go anywhere in the world where there is hope for God’s greater glory. Priests and brothers from the USA Northeast Province are bringing hope to many parts of the world, with ministries in Jamaica, Jordan and Micronesia.
