KERALA JESUITS WELCOME YOU
Warm Greetings on behalf of the Kerala Jesuits!
Jesuits have a tradition, a tradition built assiduously over five centuries, cherished by millions down the history. Kerala Jesuits have their bit of tradition beginning in 1542 with the arrival of St. Francis Xavier, a close friend of our founder St. Ignatius of Loyola.
Jesuit History is the story of a relentless search for the ‘greater glory of God (Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam’) and the good of every human being ’.
We have a mission: ‘Service of Faith and promotion of Justice in Collaboration’.
We live in a world where unimaginable prosperity coexists with degrading poverty, where scientific progress produces war equipments that can destroy the earth many times over, but cannot solve the issue of malnutrition.
There is so much injustice. So much of inhumanity. Absolute lack of faith in God and in one another. But, there is also a world of huge opportunities, of building the Kingdom of God here on earth.
Welcome to the world of Jesuits, their dreams and mission.
‘Let us together make a difference’
