What We Do

“Our life is mission, mission is our life. Life and mission are inseparable for those who choose to follow Jesus Christ in the Society of Jesus in the service of the Church.”

Arturo Sosa S.J. (31st Superior General of the Society of Jesus)

One of the key phrases capturing the charism of the Society of Jesus is “to love and to serve in all things.” In Spanish it reads, “en todo amar y servir.” Today, Jesuits in the Bombay Province continue to live out this charism by carrying out their mission not only in Mumbai and Vasai, but also in the districts of Dhule, Nandurbar, Nashik, Palghar and Raigad. The works undertaken by the Bombay Jesuits include formal and non-formal education, pastoral ministry which includes Ignatian Retreats, involvement in Culture and Dialogue, and the Social Apostolate which encompasses offering legal aid services and reaching out to poor farmers.
