The Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
The Society of Jesus commonly known as the Jesuits is a religious order of clerics regular in the Catholic Church headquartered in Rome. It was founded in 1540 by Ignatius of Loyola and his six companions (Francis Xavier, Peter Faber, Nicholas Bobadilla, Diego Laínez, Simão Rodrigues, Alfonso Salmeron) with the approval of Pope Paul III. The society is engaged in evangelization and apostolic ministry in 112 nations. Jesuits work in education, research, pastoral care, contextual involvement, conduct retreats, minister in hospitals, sponsor direct social and humanitarian ministries, and work for the promotion of Justice, peace and ecumenism.
