Jesuits

Pastoral responsibility for the Chapel of the Resurrection is held by the Society of Jesus, a religious congregation of the Roman Catholic Church. Founded by Ignatius Loyola in 1540, the Jesuits share in the universal mission of the Church, serving ad majorem gloriam Dei, for the greater glory of God.

 

 

In our own time, the Jesuits have committed themselves to work at the frontiers of the Church and of society. Four main points characterize their mission: the service of faith, the commitment to justice, the integration of the Gospel in our contemporary cultures, and interreligious dialogue. Jesuits also work in pastoral care, education at schools and universities, spiritual guidance and in many other spheres.

Engagement in the Chapel of the Resurrection embodies the commitment to ecumenical and interconfessional dialogue.

May the road rise up
to meet you
may the wind be
always at your back
