The Society of Jesus is a Roman Catholic order of priests and brothers founded half a millennium ago by the soldier-turned-mystic St. Ignatius of Loyola. But most people call us "the Jesuits."
he vision of our founder, we seek to "find God in all things." We dedicate ourselves to the “greater glory of God" and the good of all humanity. With 16,000-plus priests, brothers, scholastics and novices worldwide, we are the largest male religious order in the Catholic Church. We are pastors, teachers, and chaplains. We are also doctors, lawyers, and astronomers, among many other roles in Church and society.
Since the founder of the Jesuits, St Ignatius of Loyola, was canonized in 1622, there have been 52 other Jesuits canonized.
