Jesuits are the members of a religious order `Society of Jesus’, headquarted in Rome, founded by Saint Ignatius of Loyola, committed in evangelization and various apostolic ministries such as education, medicines and cultural recreational activities in 112 countries. They feel spiritually strengthened by the vows of poverty, obedience and chastity to colloquially refer themselves as “God’s Soldiers”. It proves their readiness to accept the orders of the time anywhere to endure any conditions. Francis Xavier, one of the original companions of Saint Ignatius reached Goa to establish Jesuit’s evangelical services in India and the seeds sprouted promisingly to yield its hundred folds in later years. The establishments are rapid so as their services and their ministries are forked on the following principles:
To walk with the poor, the outcasts of the world, those whose dignity has been violated in a mission of reconciliation and justice.
To accompany young people in the creation of a hope-filled future.
To collaborate in the care of our common home.
Jesuits are well known for their educational work. They have been teachers since the inception of the order.
