The Jesuits of the USA East Province simply could not do what we do without the support of our friends. You are an integral part of the Jesuit mission because you help ensure that Jesuits can have a life-changing impact on the people we serve.
Through gifts, large and small, our donors make possible the daily miracles of the Society of Jesus and its ministries throughout the world.
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. Support the formation of Jesuits.
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.
Jesuits from the USA East Province serve in overseas apostolates in Fiji, Micronesia and elsewhere throughout the world.
